Textual content description supplied via the architects. Situated in a space of neighborhoods referred to as Jardins, with single-family properties and inexperienced spaces indexed as heritage, this space has 550m² of a constructed space divided into two ranges, the bottom, and higher flooring. The unique land had a four-meter slope peak on the subject of the extent of the road. Thus, at the floor flooring, we now have lodged storage, storehouses, technical amenities, a part of services and products, servants’ quarters with pantry, and accesses thru inner and exterior staircases.
The higher flooring has been put in at the absolute best a part of the prevailing slope and cantilevers over the bottom flooring, which is solely above boulevard stage. At the higher flooring, this system was once arranged round a central courtyard, whose U-shape plan is articulated via a stream, with powder room, inner staircase, kitchen and pantry, an intimate room, and via two wings parallel to the exterior highway. The wing nearer to the road properties a really perfect living room with dwelling and eating spaces, house theater and balconies. Within the again wing, we now have a chain of 4 suites, the remaining being a master bedroom.
The development, of uncovered strengthened concrete solid via picket slats, has parts in remarkable fabrics reminiscent of metal, picket, and glass. The ground, of levigate travertine Roman marble within the inner ambiances was once extensively utilized within the exterior space, and the absence of unevenness has enhanced the continuity between external and inner (there’s a gadget of rainwater seize constructed into the stones). One of the most design highlights is the brises of the master bedroom, which serve as both as sunshades (modulating the doorway of sunshine till general closure) or as opening doorways.
This place of abode was once conceived to advertise private renewal and wellbeing, thru areas the place panorama and structure meet to fill up and invigorate the spirit. Thus, the central courtyard has a contemplative vertical lawn, bushes with a small grassy space, and an overflowing swimming pool to advertise a way of water replicate that displays this lawn. This courtyard, along side the huge sliding glass doors of the 2 wings, and the twelve pivotal glass doorways of the entrance facade, permit citizens to have direct touch with the outside and its inexperienced space.
Internally we now have sought a dichotomy created via the partitions of uncovered slatted concrete and the lightness of the frames with huge glass panels that open utterly in opposition to the vertical lawn courtyard and in opposition to the large present bushes of the road and the environs. As a way to intensify the sunshine coming from the huge lounge (east face), a structured set of glass steel pergola at the roof, and similarly clear glass pivoting doorways had been designed. This association has supplied an ordinary interplay with the treetops, which appear to invade the inner of this huge concrete living room, and not using a pillars in between. The home may just additionally depend on rainwater reuse, solar power seize, move air flow, home windows with warmth remedy, polystyrene thermal insulation at the roof, virtual lights keep watch over, recycled picket, amongst different measures of inexperienced structure.
