Not all the trends of architecture make us shudder with pleasure, but the preservation of nature in the construction of contemporary houses is something that we encourage deeply. Completed recently the residence architecture perfectly preserves a beautiful and mature rubber tree lemon-scented. The project consisted of a renewal of a period House, complete with a highly modern extension. This addition is light physically, in order to protect the tree and offers a point of intentional difference to the strength of the existing sandstone House.
According to the architects, the outdoor covered spaces are literally built around the tree, encapsulating and framing the trunk. Wood-clad columns become a background and a fine line of glass opens to the side yard densely planted for continuous access to the natural environment within the interior spaces. And here is where it gets interesting, since the top level are the branches of the tree that floats above the structure of the Fund to provide a unique setting overlooking . The ceiling is treated in stone, giving it a Bohemian look, especially when this covered with fallen leaves.
