House M/ completed
The client of this small, beautiful ancient factory, situated in a rural area and within a charming, green neighborhood, asked atelier ka to come up with a design solution for the rear façade; more natural light had to penetrate into the working space and the back yard had to become a physical extension of the living area and vice versa. in close cooperation with the client atelier ka designed an open rear façade trough large exterior sliding doors. By adding a bay window bench on both sides of the wall the back yard becomes in summertime a garden room. Now, the existing house benefits from an almost seamless transition of indoor and outdoor living.
