SCL Straw-bale house
The project reveals an idea of architecture based on archetypes as a trend-proof horizon. The archetype for home is shelter. Two elements, a roof and a wall, define the domestic space. Starting from the house icon we tried to rotate the roof. This single move added three more elements: a patio and two porches. The roof is conceived like a folded sheet of paper and it is superimposed on the mass of the white wall. The patio is a stone garden that hosts a non-stop natural light show. Interiors are in direct visual and physical contact with the gardens. The superimposition effect its clear also from inside.
