The environment and sunshine induced two open facades opposed to two very closed facades.The black “planes” slid into the wood siding break down the surfaces according to the functions and accentuate the graphic side of the whole. They guide the visitor in his path and in his architectural reading.

The recessed entrance and the covered terrace extend the third dimension of the outgrowth volume and the terrace.

The interior is standardized by a solid wood flooring. The spaces are defined by integrated white furniture and personalized by touches of solid wood and black.

Passive certified home.

Another great opportunity. APR’s next award Urban Design & Architecture Design Awards 2018 is open for Registration.
