B2 House Project Brief

A two-storey house made of concrete and handcrafted stone. The balcony on the upper level is a steel construction with wooden floor finishing that extends towards the house. Aluminium frames and shutters are used for the windows; the latter are filled with handcrafted reed, helping the interior of the structure remain cool. The house requires little maintenance and is ideally suited for a person with a 'nomadic' lifestyle, seeking temporary accommodation.
