Architecture can be twisted, sculptural, iconic as legendary architects have proven throughout time. A simple gesture may change a space as
The architects have described the existing site at first glance as “a deep dark dinning- living area with limited relation to the outside with a deficient connection between the kitchen and the private and public rooms. At the same time, the small size bedrooms were inefficient to cope with the actual family growth” .
The solution was a new extension, one that would separate the private spaces from the common, public ones.
Layout is further described by the architects:
“While the existing house will host two large bedrooms, the main bathroom in the ground floor and a secondary bedroom in the first level, all public areas will be linearly organized within the extension volume: open kitchen, dining place and the lounge area; all these spaces will share a wide open wooden terrace deck facing and open to the lake shore.”
The main element employed in the addition was reinforced concrete, a powerful enough structural composition that would allow four inverted beams to become the main load bearing vertical element in the home whilst integrating a spectacular fireplace, a powerful texture bold enough alone to express graphic values, form following function in a phenomenal statement of design.
Exemplary design materialized in concrete. What do you think? We would love to hear from you in the comment section below.
