The concrete structure is shown clad in weathering steel and surrounding an elevated swimming pool, which lies between the main body of the 160-square-metre house and an adjoining terrace.
The angular structure was designed for a prospective client whom the studio imagines to be a successful “contemporary nomad,” seeking a rural get-away.
“He runs his own company, living in a megalopolis but from time to time wants to escape from a bustling city,” the architects told Dezeen.
“The house is a little bit wild and seems to be exist beyond time. It’s a place where you can disconnect from the world and be one-on-one with nature.”
The project’s name, Rose House, refers to the reaction of the steel cladding to the natural environment of the mountain climate.
Large sliding glass doors set into the structure overlook the pool, and are intended to help integrate the interior and exterior environments.
Jutting out from the house, the steel structure forms a window that frames the view of the surrounding mountains. It also creates a covered poolside area, which acts as an intermediary zone between the interior and exterior spaces.
Looking out to the swimming pool, the client would see a 1.8-metre-tall bronze and glass sculpture of a man, designed by Ukrainian artist Nazar Bilyk.
Inside, the architects have created a “free-flowing” structure with moveable walls, which would convert functional areas into an open space for socialising.
The development rendering software is allowing architects to create ever-more realistic renderings.
Barcelona-based 3D visualisation studio CL3VER recently launched a virtual-reality experience of Mies van der Rohe’s iconic Barcelona Pavilion using rendering technology, while British firm Ström Architects revealed intricate visualisations of a pair of Swedish villas on the island of Lidingö.
