The buildings’ exterior walls, clad in raw wood, are an expression of this idea, directly connecting the structure with the surrounding landscape. Wooden surfaces, including floors, walls, and ceiling, are also present in the interior, blending the boundary between indoor and outdoor, and bringing that connection to nature into the interior of the home.

The clients had previously resided in the upper maisonette of this house, and when their downstairs neighbors decided to leave, they completed the purchase of the ground floor, greatly increasing the ground area of their home.

The first challenge the architectural firm tackled was increasing the proportions of the interior spaces in order to give the house an enhanced sense of space and grandeur. In order to do this, the low floor to ceiling height of the first floor was modified, in order to increase the spaces and give the rooms more luminosity.

The interior décor is done in a muted color palette consisting of different shades of gray against rich wooden floors. Some darker pieces add touches of contrast, such as the fireplace in the living room and a dark wooden table in the bedroom, making the spaces feel more dynamic.
