Construction of two semidetached houses. But, how many homes have two houses? Maybe not just 2. We like its in definition. Are they are 6 houses, 4 or 2…?

We propose an ambiguous project in relation to size and number of homes. The houses are divided in compact volumes, with different sizes and heights.

We propose choices which guarantee the survival of the natural environment.

Mar Azul is a place well-known for us from time ago, so when we built our first work in 2004, we knew that we have to intervene a land that, despite of its worthy landscape, had never count with a legal support that protect this patrimony of those which built with a unique aim: get the most out of the earth. This land neither count with a code that, understanding the logic of this privileged space, regulate resolving the difference between this inappropriate constructions and the possibility of building without losing the properties of the site. In addition to this situation, the habit of building “picturesque houses in a place of fantasy” is taming slowly the forest, which is nowadays owner of a strong wild presence.

Flip House Wisconsin in San Francisco by Fourgeron Architecture

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Article source: Fourgeron Architecture

Like many San Francisco homes, this one poorly integrated its many levels with each other and with its sloping topography and solar orientation. Reversing its reading, we recast the back of the house as its primary façade with a faceted, custom-built glass wall. Divided into three vertical panels that push in and out, this dynamic prism brings animating light and spectacular views to the communal living spaces, now placed at the rear. Bedrooms were flipped to the front.
