Are you making a statement?

The current owner’s parents built the original post-war house on this plot, which he grew up in. The new owners contacted Porebski Architects, inspired by a house in the neighborhood designed by the bureau in 1972. The old house made way for a compact, modern villa, sheltered by the surrounding garden. An essential aspect of the house is the way you enter the building.

The entry pathway and copper entry pivot door, hidden from the street, set the tone for the interior. The pivot door is part of a simple building palette of concrete bricks, off-form concrete, copper, and timber. The large pivot door is impressive in size alone, all the while the shimmering material is welcoming you in both day and night.
