House at Piton

The design of the house is based on a cruciform axis which uses the full dimensions of the site. All on single level, the house continues the practice’s investigations into the prevention of overlooking and the preservation of privacy. A courtyard in the middle permits good cross ventilation of all the spaces giving ample natural light whilst increasing perimeter exposure to the outside. It also means that all the spaces have contact with nature for better health and improved quality of life.
