A young, single engineer asked us for a loft-style house: very open and transparent, and built on a metallic structure.
Using the client’s clear idea as a starting point, we resolved to locate the house at the back of the property, with a big yard in front, which would provide optimal perspective and privacy with regards to the openness and proportion we were seeking for.
We left the dark-toned structures at plain sight, and incorporated wooden materials in the finishing, with the purpose of blending the building in with its natural environment.
I like the sense of openness that the double-height provides, as well as the connection with the garden, thanks to the large windows.
