prototype house k3 2000



the maximum of living comfort within the most simple of all structures is at the core of this concept. the harmonization of living standard and simplicity of construction is pursued on the levels of spatial flexibility and the reduction of visible, constructive elements. everything is intended to be as simple as necessary, but not more simple than that.

the minimum of elements needed to construct the house becomes the theme in the spatial perception of the house in- and outside. it is easy to take an active interest in the house. the joints between the elements are visible, expanding into windows in the places, where the client wishes them to be.

the constructive elements are exchangeable and applicable in a horizontal and vertical manner. a simple box has the same logic of construction. one would take as few pieces as necessary to build it. the transformation of this logic into the scale of the house offers the possibility to feel the nature of the house, to recognize its character, and character is the basis of each dialogue.

k3 communicates with its owner in a structurally and spatially understandable, direct but sensitive way. the elements are recognizable, the structure and spaces flexible. it promotes individual lifestyles on a very open level of owner participation during the planning phases. the fix points of planning are defined by the spatially perceptive principles of construction.
