A house of hidden depths

Wednesday 30 Nov 2011

Sensitive house design takes family interaction into consideration

The client family of this house needed many small rooms. So, the architects firstly examined the possibility of a row of small, deep rooms, upon the client's demand.

After the concept was fixed, the architects considered different widths depending on suitable scales for each of the rooms. After that, they edited the composition of the sections.

The rooms 'melt' together or overlap each other on the first floor and are integrated within the communal family space.

Indeed, a family is the smallest unit in terms of social groups, and to build a house in this way might be a natural consequence, and effective in a time when individuality is naturally respected among his or her family.
