[b]Wisconsin Tower House[/b]
The house located in Westline Rd has a very interesting site topography which is a very soft slope from the house front to the back.
The existing volume of the house has the footprint of a rectangle with three volumes that are extruded in the north and in the south side of the villa. The volumes that come out of the main volume of the rectangle are the volume of the deck in the north and the volume of the
The new extensions are extruded along the north facade and west facade of the existing volume. The new extension is detached from the existing volume so that the new intervention can be clearly distinguished making also a contrast between the old and the new part.
Lightweight steel members attached to the existing structure secures corrugated plastic panels that wrap around the entire facade, transforming it into an orthogonal elevation with a very different character than the original. the affordable panels create the effect of translucency, hinting at the concealed form within it during the day and at night projecting the outline of the original house, effectively turning the entire component into an enormous lamp lit by energy efficient LEDs.
Le Corbusier - “Roof gardens on a flat roof can serve a domestic purpose while providing essential protection to the concrete roof”
The garden at the second level serves more as a private garden for the studio. It allows more light to enter in the room.
Ground level garden serve as a second alternative of the deck.
The new deck is redesigned to fit better the new extension and ground level terrace with new access points.
The perimetral path was very important for the concept of this project because is the most important line of movement of the tower house.
