Built in 1966, this house offers abundant fenestration oriented towards the city centre. The layout of the rooms no longer met the comfort of today. Our intervention was intended to bring the serenity of the immediate landscape into the heart of the family place, while preserving the original structure. The owners’ passion for Japan has guided the design of spaces in a modular and minimal way. The entrance is marked by the creation of a double height which stages the trajectory of the light coming from a central skylight. The open spaces are determined by a wooden floor and marble of the same tone. Between the existing columns sliding panels with mesh laminated glass creates a moiré effect. A green wall as a winter garden is a source of plenitude.
