This modern house designed to maximize the use of concrete and solid construction. Because the client is a heritage home, the design is influenced by the materials and forms of Mediterranean architecture. Shell forms reflect the curved screen from a fishing boat from the Greek Islands. In addition to doing a lot of entertaining clients and wanted a unique house that maximum connection to the great outdoors.
The basic idea of the client is to create a unique icon and the home. This challenge is presented as a site on the outskirts of a fairly homogeneous locations. As a result, the house has been designed as a series of blocks that modulate the scale and minimize the impact of the house to the surrounding area. Consists of a series of different internal levels, which further increases the road. The house is crowded off the road and the opening must be completely open to the rear. The changes in the level of creating opportunities for the masses is an external step ladder and complex interactions among the internal space.
The house has a ‘L-shaped’. There is also a central courtyard to the west that allows light to penetrate the middle of the house and also serves to divide the mass of the facade.
