This residence multitasks as a house for three generations of a family, a busy workspace (architectural studio), and on occasion a cultural hub. The house is organized in overlapping spatial categories split into three levels. The materiality is arranged in crisp clear planes that are articulated in local limestone, local hardwood and concrete. While the materiality of the opaque surfaces is highlighted as light picks up the various textures of these different planes, transparency is achieved by a combination of glass and water, through reflections and modulated natural light. The project is a confluence of the notions of nature, culture, family and modernity.
