House K spirals into view 

The concept of the house is inspired by the shape of a snail’s shell, which involves a spiral twisting around its own axis, and as such all functional elements of the house follow each other and are built around a central atrium. The atrium was made in order to compensate for a lack of sunlight in the living-room area and enabled two-way lighting of certain rooms.

The house opens out and rises two floors towards a vast green meadow and forest. Towards the street the house is enclosed by a simple ground-floor façade with a hidden garage door. Almost in opposition to the progression of a snail’s home, we enter the K House through a modest and unnoticeable entrance situated at the edge of the southern façade. This is where the spiral movement around the atrium and through the half-levels begins; it ends in a big living room that opens towards the outdoor terrace and the forest.
