One of the easiest shapes that a designer could probably start with is a box and that is exactly what Estudio Aire have done.
The main focal point of the design is a courtyard with all rooms of the single storey house overlooking it. In what might be referred to as a design that cuts you off from the outside world and something very private, the designers still allow for a degree of privacy but are also able to bring the outside in. The use of water in the courtyard reflects the sun and sky but also the lining rooms have glass windows to allow the light to shimmer.
For such a confined space the house feels spacious and light – a trick adopted by the designers to create a sleek and modern design.
