The location of this house at the top of the hill against the direct sun at the end of road calls drives the concept to embrace the rising and setting of the sun.
The natural stone, travertine cladded movable panels forms the front elevation which will tilt and angle towards the sun’s path as its moves from east to west. This construction and use of marble as the front facet acts a passive shading of the direct sun, acting as a sun-screen.
In the interior of both the 2nd and 3rd floor, the back of the travertine forms a different textured feature wall while the diffused natural lighting creates a glow into the rooms.
The cement feature casted-in-situ air well which runs from 1st to 3rd storey created that pocket of natural garden, ventilation and lighting which is much required for a terraced house.
