Concept

The projects maintains the existing access and building which is transformed into a transition place for the new house. The entrance of the dwelling built on the slope faces the North orientation in order to view the city and the sun at the south. The composition stands as a contradiction of two main experience elements: The experience of the earth organized by the concrete wall and the experience of the sky organized by the cantilevered white prism above.
