Greja House

The brief from the client was simple. They asked a house in which the various spaces are connected to each other and promotes interactions within the household. Furthermore, the client wanted a house that is markedly different from its context - a design with clean lines.

CONCEPT

The project revisits the fundamental role of a home – providing an environment that bonds a family. The design sought to heighten the occupants’ sensorial awareness and to increase domestic interactions. To that end, the scheme imagines domestic spaces connected within a flow. Key to the idea of flow are notions of connection and circulation, which informed the way the spaces are composed. Departing from the conventional approach where walls are used to define space, the domestic programmes are composed as interconnected voids. It opens up the spaces to connect and communicate with one another across multiple directions, creating an expanded network of connections that increases the opportunities for familial interactions.
