Hinge Farmhouse

Amid Pajot greenery, we let our creativity run wild on an old farmhouse. The building consisted of a house and a workshop with adjoining outbuildings around a courtyard.  Ypsilon Business Photography In order to include the outbuildings in the house, we needed a link in the form of a central circulation space connecting both buildings and all other spaces. The solution came in the form of a tower-shaped volume that serves as a central stairwell and houses a home office at the top from where the residents can enjoy 360° views over the surrounding fields, woods and courtyard.  Ypsilon Business Photography The home's existing entrance was removed from the courtyard and relocated to the rear of the new hinge. This inte... More

Tangled Cubes

Designed as a lifestyle home the program was deliberately split into two units centered around a large central court. The larger of these two units holds the formal and informal areas on the lower floor with the bedrooms on the upper level. The smaller “Outhouse Unit” serves as the entertainment den along with a gymnasium, sauna, changing rooms, and service areas. The outhouse faces the central court on the South side while the North is defined by a monolithic white compound wall-as found in older tropical estates- that encloses a private garden, which could be developed into a gridded orchard over time.

Project • By ETB StudioPrivate Houses


Located along the fringe of Venice’s Southern Lagoon, in an urban centre of low building density, the project for three housing units is composed prevalently by isolated buildings on lots. The decision to develop the different units through a single, compact organism stems from the strategic objective to optimise the area’s scarce available space, preserving as much surface as possible for the garden.   This morphological scheme simultaneously allows for the stimulation of social interaction and the civil cohabitation of residents, firm values that have always characterized the rural lifestyles of the Venetian countryside. These values once physically manifested themselves into villas, barchessas, farmhouses, and compact... More
