Savoy Residences

The plot’s particularity, morphology and the surrounding area was of key importance for every design decision. While the elongated nature of the plot allows for a linear arrangement, the height differences and the aspect of privacy from the surrounding buildings were a major factor dictating the conditions.

The first two houses were suited for a basement level where functions that would otherwise occupy important space from the higher level, are now impact less on the living conditions of the living spaces. This allowed for a maximum garden area. Furthermore the spaces are arranged in such a way which creates a unique experience moving along the building. The main spaces are fragmented and later connected with circulation or secondary services thus creating slots in the volumetric composition of the house, creating green layers deeper in the uncommon way of experiencing the spaces.
The third house is treated with the same qualities but instead arranged without the basement level. Taking into account the shape of the last part of the plot and the future possibility of having a garden extension, the last house was also implemented with a swimming pool.
Lastly the design direction chosen for the project is an important parameter shaping the project. The design language chosen for the treatment of the building is identifying the harmony found in simple white forms with particular details like perforation, greenery and vertical elements which exaggerates the well balanced proportions of the houses.
