House THE by N-lab Architects

By • Apr 24, 2012 •  Selected Work 

Luxembourg city-based studio N-Lab Architects has designed the House THE.

Completed in 2010, this two story contemporary home is located in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

House THE by N-lab Architects:

“The clearly defined volumes play with the concepts of heaviness and lightness. A walk around the single-family house reveals firmly anchored volumes and floating bodies creating large overhangs. The four facades were treated with regard to local conditions. The few openings to neighboring buildings are partially covered in wooden slats in order to filter the views from and to the most private areas.

The largest opening is on the garden side, where the entire first floor is raised off the ground,, to maximize the living area and to blur the boundaries between the inside and the outside. The number of materials in the interior have been limited to create a calm atmosphere and to focus on the many views outside the house.”
