About MHS

Sculptural Design: Merging Form with Function

The architect envisioned a house resembling a sculptural form for this unique location.

Innovative Stacked Structures

Three concrete boxes make up the house, each deliberately shifted from its counterpart. The ground floor houses a living space, complete with a pantry and restroom. Meanwhile, the second floor boasts a working room. Additionally, the overlapping section from the first floor provides a terrace, fitted with a jacuzzi.

Panoramic Mountain Views

The master bedroom and bathroom occupy the top floor. These rooms feature expansive glass windows, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains.

Material Choices for Aesthetic and Function

Artificial wood wraps the second and third floors, infusing warmth. Conversely, the first floor employs plaster cement walls, grounding the house with a sturdy foundation.

Dimensions and Sustainability

Each box shares dimensions of 6.60 by 6.60 meters (approximately 21.6 by 21.6 feet) and a height of 3.45 meters (approximately 11.3 feet). The house spans roughly 135 square meters (approximately 1453 square feet). Energy efficiency stands front and center, with a focus on natural ventilation. Moreover, solar cell panels adorn the rooftop, powering the home’s hot water supply.
