Plan / East & North elevations (scale 1:20)
The "House" we have proposed is characterized by geometries closely related to the environment, especially toward the slope. If, at the south side of the project, we can observe a linear dynamic in relation to the asphalt surface of the parking lot, the North side rushes towards the river following the slope of the natural site.
Taking into consideration the past projects provided as a starting point, the House intends to offer a wide choice of use to the occupants. It has several "Rooms" that present different spatial conditions. Some spaces are used as debate rooms, others as theatre stages or concerts scenes.
At the bottom of the house (located north), a platform allows visitors to communicate better with the river. In the centre, at the height of the surrounding trees, a terrace can be the ideal place to spend a moment of relaxation while participating, enjoying either the dabate or the show.
The particularity of proposing several options of use goes hand in hand with the multiplicity of levels in the house: everyone can be free to choose at which height to stop. The slope, dense of trees, is an obstacle for anyone who wants to get as close to the water as possible. Thanks to the massive use of scales and passages, the project facilitates this transition.
The different "Rooms" are linked together by a dense network of stairs and walkways, sometimes intersected by balconies. In this way, each element of transition makes it easier for visitors to walk around and rest.
