GARLIC house Renders

approach to family house


We have been working lately on GARLIC house rendering and this is a view from the woods looking at the family house’s main facade.

The external metallic structure and mesh retain the stones collected from the site itself and continues up to the roof level to create a pergola that may be used for photovoltaic panels. The metallic frame emerging from the side is a rail for the sliding facade that opens completely the indoor space towards the exterior, hence, extending the main terrace and outdoor activity especially in summertime.

As for the Guard house, below are the final renderings showing it from below as well as the access to the roof vegetable garden from the back.
