ALFINACH HOUSE

The Alfinach house sits on a long plot (23 X 53,5 m), where the north-south axis is the long side, with the entrance on the short side facing south.It is that shape of the plot and that orientation that will define the project definitively. The clients wanted to have a house with the majority of the rooms on the ground floor and conditioned by the sunlight and geometry of the site.

The materiality is concrete for the porch, the masonry stone for the living room volume and the abstraction of the white multilayer cladding for the rest of the volumes.
