This one unit home is another attempt at simplifying yet experimenting with the existing levels, the natural contours that make the design more playful yet keeping the central courtyard plan within set parameters.
The spatial planning was clearly worked around the various views on this two Kanal land parcel making sure that every room had a view, each level was open yet private and an internal green water court made accessible to all.
The requirements were fairly simple but the feedback from the clients helped achieve them yet being flexible making sure the firms design philosophy was clearly defined.
The entry level was intentionally elevated to create a natural basement, the staircase centralised and the suites on the first floor designed with double height mezzanines with two sided views and approachable private terraces.
The building has been broken on various levels with transition spaces, skylights and large windows to maximize the views and ventilation which is a compulsory element of the studios work.
