: Inside Outside Room

The project started with a wish from the client to create more space for the living floor of their house.

This process resulted in a volume of 7/5/4 meters totally open to the garden with a fully openable accordion door and offering the living floor a balcony relation to the new space. 

This room, with no specific function but the one of offering freedom of life, becomes an inside outside space, with a strong connection both to the garden and the house.
