GREEN ZONE

This house is surrounded by forest; its exterior walls have a smooth concrete look and sleek aluminium windows to emphasise the contrast with the lush green background. The architectural plan consists of three rectangular elements strung together by a collection of functions, which reflect an individual character and are centred around a glass patio, that vertically pierces through the house. As a result, light enters and the external environment remains tangible at the lowest level. Openness vs closedness and private vs public are important concepts in this assignment and also a distinct request of the clients to play with this flexibility of zoning within the house, establishing a visual and physical relationship with the exterior.
