K House

JA+U : K House by D.I.G Architects
The ground was slightly leveled to accommodate the foundation of the 89 m2 (958 ft2) residence. Steel beams support the lower floor, cantilevering it over the hillside.

Thanks to the polyhedral form of the house, the 7.9 m-wide (25.9 ft) glazing is unobstructed by columns. The window frames were also kept as thin as possible to preserve views to the west.

At street level, the 2.7 m-wide (8.9 ft) loft space spans over the living area. Another terrace extends from this bridge-like space. The loft may be repurposed into a bedroom in the future.
