Description:

The venture developed with exploiting the perspectives from the living arrangement to the eucalyptus woodland that is found contiguous the plot. Three slim solid chunks offer shape to the rectangular volume that is the beginning stage of the proposition. The house sits mid-level over the ground to make the carport’s space and have a superior perspective of the treetops.

A segment is extricated from the house’s volume to make a focal porch where a current Eucalyptus is safeguarded; and the separated volume produces a body as an afterthought to make the fundamental passage of the residence.The lower piece of the volume, where people in general territories of the house are, has a glass skin to have better perspectives of the patio and outwardly extend the space towards the woodland. In the top floor the principle façades have a wooden cross section to channel the light and shield the rooms from daylight without losing the perspective.

An inside yard with a wellspring serves as a transitional space between the kitchen and the TV room, and to make a visual association with the focal porch and the abutting woodland
