9:48 pm
surroundings. this property used to be a vineyard there are still loads of great vines behind the house fence the windows are attached to the supporting structure like grapes to a stand. on the platforms branch out of the main middle wall yes just like the trunk of a vine. there was no space for one continuous stairwell and the rooms are not arranged into typical floors instead they are joined by individual staircases and platforms. to get a building permit he had to be creative when plotting the floor plan. was staying within property lines with just two hundred ninety one square meters
9:49 pm
the property is small to begin with subtract the border limit clarence and you're left with five times nine metres. picture designing a house just five steps wide and nine steps long it's impossible. in the end he managed to create roughly a hundred thirty square metres of living space inside it's back to basics and ceilings are made a fair faced concrete wall furniture at splashes of color the glass facade makes the rooms appear larger. on the concrete core provide structure. in my experience when you have a lot of us it's important to have a strong back to provide a sense of security if you have glass on both sides it's like you're lost in a sort of limbo here you have a backyard and then you have a fantastic view this lens the room a feeling of peace and car. each
