Dualistic Space 

From the street the house looks like a tower seated on the slope of a grassy lawn. It brings together primary volumes and fluid objects with curvilinear structures, with the aim of building an organism arising from the juxtaposition of diverse spatial places which are nonetheless continuous and interconnected. At the bottom of the site, a wall defined by its internal contents is in contrast with the tower whilst sharing its base. A coordinated succession of shapes and supple lines shows off a prismatic and sharp triple height. From dusk till dawn, the external glass walls allow sun and sky to continuously reinterpret the architectural discourse, shifting its perception and plasticity.
