KNOW MORE ABOUT THE DESIGNERS:
When the designers first visualized this house, they imagined a small, silent forest of red oaks, and how the wind rustling the foliage on trees and the sound of footsteps on wood would break that silence. This forest would be nestled in a patio, eliciting the architecture of the old houses of the city. The patio would be encompassed by four volumes composing the house.
The first volume which is the largest would accommodate the service entrance, storage room, service quarters, pantry, kitchen and terrace, and on the upper level, a guest room and study.
Resting atop is a second volume, a floating box of black granite that includes the TV lounge and three bedrooms. Due to the conditions and position below the box, functions such as the living room, dining room and office, are incorporated all opening and oriented toward the central forest.
