The public fifth floor rests upon the private fourth floor, and the third floor’s public front versus the private rear. The public functions are delineated by the interplay of planes : the walls and floors, while the private functions are defined by volumes encased by intersecting solid walls.
This impression wanes at dusk, as the glow from the horizontal slit windows and the vertical glass slots animates the street facade, making the aluminum appear more as a screen than a mass, and invites the eye toward, but not into, the house.
The front facade derives its expression from the interior interplay of openness and privacy. It screens the house from the street through several layers: the stairway, the bookshelves, the solid wall with punched windows providing glimpses of the street, and the exterior perforated aluminum rain screen. Two narrow vertical glass slots run the full height of the facade, capturing light from the street while further accentuating the length of the spaces with continuous views from the front to the back of the building.
A sequence of boxes of different sizes that are attached and moved across. The boxes open to one side and close to the opposite side in order to show or hide their content. These different boxes slide on each other while being however internally connected. The different uses inside are visually independent but there is still a continuity between them. The lower boxes host the more private uses of the dwelling, such as the bedroom, the dressing room and the bathroom, while the higher ones host the more public uses, such as the living room, the dining room and the kitchen
Our customer likes to spend the evening with large companies and very much to all of this was taken into account. Just needed a Bio-fireplace, large screen TV and a large kitchen. The decision came at once – we did not share, and made false volume and partially suspended in the air. All functionality we placed in the hall. High contrast supported the dynamics of the central structure, which combines several tasks. The main emphasis was made by a central fireplace with a suspended work island, a fridge and two TVs. Space fat to work for itself. You can completely bypass around the central shape, and thus views.
