Etlin House

Project

This project explores the capacity of architecture to dissolve the notion of interior and exterior and become a continuum between outdoor and indoor. Being in a very wide-open natural context, we wanted to caliber to extroversion towards views and prevailing winds with the right need of introversion of domestic architecture. On top of the house there is water used for enjoyment in the form of pool and for thermal isolation as of a laminar mass, all sustained in a single central column as water tanks do.
