House with eaves and an attic09. Jun2011

TAGS: roof

The house was built on the edge of a cliff on the only flat part of the site which measures approximately 4.5 m by 16 m.. Because on the site the house was placed within a cluster of trees, the design was made with care about the nature, leaving the trees untouched and even incorporating their presence into the house structure by letting them grow through the over-sized roof height. 

The house have three levels with the exaggerated pitched roof covered with grey shingles. The windows puncture interspersedly the facade forming a series of picture windows of different sizes which gives a playful identity for the house.
