Residence in Kifissia, Greece – 27 May 2013
Design: Tense Architecture Network

Metallic columns support a net of inox ropes where plants have started to climb in order to generate a volume equally important to the house’s prisms. When the plants are grown the green screen will be penetrated only by the black central column of the concrete shelter. The basalt-watery surface on which it is based reflects the light in the interior. Exposed concrete is dark tinted where a greater depth, a sense of anchoring was necessary. Artificial light is cautiously managed in order to protect the night and the intimacy that dim light offers.
Roof on the Hill, Japan
picture : Kai Nakamura
This is a residential house located in a new development site in Takarazuka, Japan. Because of the solid nature of the ground, we decided to make a building only by putting a roof over the sloped terrain without modifying it. The house, spread on the terraced ground, has 3 meter by 3 meter grid steel frame. It consists of boxes, including a bedroom, a children’s room and a bathroom, and a residual space resulted from the subtraction of the boxes.

The site for the house is a former garden on the east bank of a heavily wooded river valley. The building is placed perpendicular to the stream, to heighten the dramatic potential of the setting and to avoid obstructing the view for the house beyond.

In 1994, the architects began work on the project and while in construction the owner, due to circumstances beyond his control, halted all construction of the project. The client asked the architect if it were possible to alter/remodel the partially constructed house, which was a remodel/addition to a 1970s ranch style house, into a project that fit into current zoning and structural codes.
