PHouse

TIXA studio associato as Architects

The single level house was designed as a large window that perfectly frames the outside that surrounds the estate. A gradual wooden walkway leads to the entrance of the house, passing through a Mediterrean garden and a wall constructed from full-height L-shaped iron elements. Thanks to the irregular rotation of these elements, the space over the wall may or may not be seen depending on the point of view. A secret gate, literally blended in with the wall, gives access to the private garden, the patio and the main entrance.

 

The living area is an open space and the large windows set on the four sides of the building, which look out on the internat patios and garden, provide the living room with natural light and a sense of continuity between the indoor and the outdoor. In this area there are the kitchen and its storeroom, the dining room and a hall which divides the two spaces by the verticality of the floating fireplace. Here, a long path looks out to the outside while leading to the bedroom area and other facilities.

 

The main bedroom with a view of the garden and direct access to it, was designed as a airy and full equipped place. Two more bedrooms, a laundry and a guest bath are located in the north-east. The volume of the house is constructed from full and empty elements that allow the light and the nature to merge with the whole house. The outside becomes the inside, this is a new limit that directs the eyes by favouring a precise direction: these simple steps are behind the project Phouse.
