Concrete house

The building consists of two rectangles placed perpendicularly on top of each other. The two rectangles connected by a bare concrete strip with a wooden like texture, formed by the formwork from where it was produced, this concert strip act as a ribbon, wrapping the rectangles together.

Lower rectangle
The bottom rectangle operate as the lower ground floor, facing to the west toward the open fields and the sunset. The ground floor includes all public functions such as: kitchen, dining room, living room (facing the courtyard) as well as, a guest room with en suite bathroom, and stairs to first floor and basement.

Top rectangle
The top rectangle placed east to west, forming a roof above the entrance on the bottom, and a balcony over the living room overlooking the yard and landscape. The upper floor includes all private functions such as: bedrooms and bathrooms. The two rectangles crate a high passing space between them. A large window located at the upper section of this space, allowing natural light to pass through and ventilate the hot air out.

The dual space allows eye contact from the ground floor to the top floor, making space orientation easy while allowing a continuous view of the entire space from the entrance. A pair of red steel beams positions crossed over each other, provide a solution for supporting the west porch and add lightness and elegance to the structure.

An automated system regulates the amount of light via a shading mechanism installed in all the windows of the house.

The main staircase connects the basement and the rest of house. The basement floor is similar in size to the ground floor and has a private entrance from the outside. It include: gym, cinema room, and a guest room with en suite bathroom.
