A private family residence situated in an urban environment: the house is a closed, white box, devoid of any decorative or ornamental elements. Within the “box”, long, horizontal lines have been opened which connected the house to its surroundings and which created, within the structure, a feeling as if an entire life had been frozen in time. The openings make it possible to look out into the surrounding environment, or look into the house. They allow natural light to penetrate the structure or artificial lighting to seep out, into the surroundings, during the hours of darkness. The grooved and perforated envelope constitutes a type of polished and minimalistic object which brings out the monastic and minimized language that the designer chose to use. The fa ade facing the street is remarkable in its restraint and the desire to create an exact and restrained show. In the direction of the surrounding neighborhood, the other facades are built from large white walls with the random lines opened up in the walls through which the sunlight penetrates the walls, creating drama, motion and dynamism in a space that is otherwise so very meditative.
