The First House
In this project, two buildings were transformed and combined into a home-studio concept.
The small existing residence was turned into a maison-tour (tower-house) by the addition of two floors. Three levels, three open-floor concepts, connected to create “home” in its purest state.
The living space on each floor features a different degree of intimacy, from the most open and welcoming to the most secretive:
The studio was built in what had been a garage, and now houses the offices of YH2. It is linked to the house by the garden, which is an extension of the interior spaces.
The architectural purism results from the simplest of spatial compositions.
“Symmetry is the rule and asymmetry the exception,” wrote Donald Judd.
The Maison-tour is our essay on symmetry.
