White Snake house

The White snake house is a particular souvenir for the architect Pierre Minassian and his architecture studio AUM based in Lyon, France – a peculiar challenge of an exceptional construction of a home sculpted from concrete and glass perched on top of a lake. The site in itself represents 40 hectares of lake and oak forest. The lake is oval shaped and located in the middle of the forest.The clients originally wanted to build their house in the middle of the forest, but the architect Pierre Minassian convinced them to build it on the lake. The house is composed of 2 slabs of white concrete.

Qualitas Equity Partners

The office occupies a complete floor of a building in a busy corner in Barrio de Salamanca, one of Madrid´s best neighborhoods.We wanted to bring natural light throughout the space. We decided to bring the individual office boxes and meeting rooms towards the façade and enclose them using only a very light iron and glass wall. The open office spaces are located at the end of each building wing.We repeated the iron and glass wall structure but exchanged the glass with a perforated metal sheet to give privacy to the meeting rooms and private offices. This new wall gives shape to reception and informal meeting spaces, and privacy to the individual offices and meeting rooms. The floor along the office spaces is the same kind of wooden deck-like...
