Overlapping volumes and glass walls were combined to create a sense of transparency and open space in this minimalist style Sao Paulo City residence. The transparency of the living space created continuity between the large internal garden and a ray pool, providing light and union between interior and exterior, fully integrated to the house through slippery glass panels. The spatial integration aimed to promote intense interaction and coexistence among individuals in the family, one of the keys in designing this project.
Flexhouse is a single-family home on Lake Zurich in Switzerland. Built on a challenging triangular plot of land, squeezed between the railway line and the local access road, Flexhouse is the result of overcoming many architectural challenges: restrictive boundary distances and building volume, triangular shape of the plot, restrictions regarding local vernacular. The resulting building with its wide walls of glass and a ribbon-like white façade is so light and mobile in appearance that it resembles a futuristic vessel that has sailed in from the lake and found itself a natural place to dock.
