M3 House / OLARQ Osvaldo Luppi Architects

In this design, the characteristics of the plot, located in a consolidated residential urban fabric have played a key role. In a search for privacy and views to the sea, the starting compact volume is broken up to open up a courtyard. A complex series of transparencies, reflections and long views across the patio strengthens the continuous presence of endless spaces. In a plot inserted in a consolidated residential fabric, with a slight slope in downward direction N-S, a two-story house (plus a basement) has been proposed.
