Housing

The House as individual Skin  σ

The typology of the single-family house hasn't been reinvented for generations. The traditional arrangement of house, pool and garden forms an inherited linear composition which we often unchangingly reproduce.

In our designs we like to rethink this typical 'houseaesthetic' along the concomitant classical linear arrangement of the surrounding elements while developing them in a contemporary context. The house is developed with our clients as a personalized and tailored skin which is embedded in the landscape. The surrounding green space and elements such as pool and garden are intertwined with the house and developed as a cohesive ensemble.

Hence the house operates as a skin or as an interface between interior and exterior. The interior becomes part of the exterior as the exterior becomes part of the interior. Inhabitants are simultaneously at home and in nature.
