House in Juso, by ARX Architects + Stefano Riva, 2008-2011 - in Juso, Portugal
In the concept, the importance of “expanding” the outdoor space becomes a particular central aspect, since it is also a building integrated in a semi-rural area, where people go looking for the experience of inhabiting garden or open yard spaces.
”We propose, after all, to solve and clarify the question, by widening to the maximum the inhabitable premises in their global scope, both in the vertical and horizontal referentials, in both interior and exterior. The building has been thus structured in three floors, spatially related in profile, each level having specific and different characteristics.” via archdaily
