House L
The ground floor was raised with respect to the current ground level, with large glass surfaces positioned to look out over the rural landscape and terraces running the length of the building with an unbroken roof surface on corbelling, all of which allow the outer space to be experienced to the full. At the same time, the large roof projections are designed to prevent too much light entering.

House GEPO
The garden is the living room, the small lake the bathroom. The kitchen you’ll find next door. OYO chose for a minimalistic approach, omitting fancy details. There is no need of ornament. This and others choices result in a low budget home that sticks perfectly to the basic idea of living, functioning very open minded.

The house should harmonize two important needs: large area in brickwork walls for the exhibition of the arts, and facades with glass so that the external landscape could be seen in the House. Thus was created a gallery of 14 meters deep, and double height of 6 meters high, offering a display area of 190 square meters.

This house is austere and quite impenetrable – the facade materials give it a heavyweight appearance and there are minimal openings. You could say it is an unfriendly building, but inside there are a variety of strong interlocking spaces making for a dynamic introverted architecture.
