We built this house around a piano whose sound we had to contain. In an area of 220 sqm, we had to make sure that the pianist obtained right acoustic conditions in a space large enough to give recitals and group lessons.  Save this picture!© Luis GordoaAt the same time, the house had to protect the neighbors and the other residents of the house from the sound. We surrounded all edges of the site with tall stone walls. With concrete beams crossing them, we suspended all the second floor leaving the ground floor almost empty, isolating the piano. Save this picture!Floor PlanIn the middle of this space, under the master bedroom, is the living room where the piano takes center stage and, thanks to recycled wood floors and the stone porosity, the sound is properly absorbed. The house has two sunny bedrooms and a dark movie studio in the second floor.  Save this picture!© Luis GordoaThe house, wrapped in stone, opens to the sun all day; however, the house is denying all outside views. It achieves this by receiving sun light reflected off all the walls. It is a house that seems in constant motion by light.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaProject gallerySee allShow lessSerlachius Museum Gösta Extension Competition Proposal / XMLArticlesOffice Building in Vevey / Atelier Zündel & Cristea and ArchitramArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs 2010last_img read more
