Montblanc House was commissioned by a family of four, a couple with two children. The land is surrounded by existing houses on three sides and is located in a quiet residential area of ??low altitude, allowing still have good views of the mountains in the distance.
One of the challenges of the project was to respond to the neighboring houses, which had a lot of windows facing the ground. The architects had to consider how to create an open space into a more well-contained.
It was thought a sloping roof that forms a continuous and open exterior, from first to third floor. Five large openings in the roof give natural light and ventilation to the interior, complemented by breathtaking views of the surroundings. Windows, and empty without frames, have an altogether different scale to that of the neighboring houses, were expanded.
The outside – interior was designed to generate the sensation of being inside a forest allows the wind, the sounds of nature and the views towards the open sky, appearing from time to time.
Among the “wilderness” appear also views of the city at the foot of the mountain. This is further enhanced through the angles and heights, as the “external” crossing the three levels are interconnected.
Thus it was possible to create a place for this type of unique experiences in the midst of a crowded residential area, allowing sometimes forget the existence of the neighboring houses.
