A change in the perception of space
The house is divided into eight different blocks, geometrically spread over the reinforced concrete. Most blocks are connected via pivot doors, all with FritsJurgens System M+ pivot hinges. The doors are all designed in the exact same way: 290 cm tall and 95 cm wide, with the same handles on each door.
Gardini Gibertini Architects: “We imagined that the house had an extremely fluid internal movement and that the divisions between the different spaces did not appear as mere gates or passages in the literal sense of the term.
We imagined these pivot doors as actual walls that could be moved, and that they could change, by being moved, the perception of spaces.“
The influence of a pivot door on a space can be enormous. The experience of the door is influenced by the movement, the material, and the dimensions. Discover how various types of pivot doors influence an environment.
