- apartment building (two duplex)
- "Third facade in face to face"[...]
Ending a row of houses, the project serves as a transition between two typologies. On one side a homogenous build frontage of adjoint houses and on the other side a 1939 modernist-style villa, implanted on a distance from the street.
The lateral facade, in spite of its location on the parcel limit, functions as a third facade. Elaborated in its thickness, it's composed of opaque panes facing the villa. Situated in different, parallel planes, they let pass the light between them into the heart of the building and allow different views on the surrounding exterior.
Seen from the villa, the volumes animate the facade and create a dialogue.
A common staircase, located on the street side lounging the right common wall, gives access to the apartments. A vertical span covert in natural stone and glass materializes the access. By its composition and its character, the facade responds to the angular volume of the villa.
On the backside, the receding facade panes bring the construction closer to the profile of the neighbor building. The volumetric elaboration avoids supplementary shadow projection on the villa and its garden.
