Film Colony Residence 2

The only two story house in the development. The exterior building fa├žade is a continuation of the corten steel plate of the retaining walls, wrapping around the building as a ribbon. The roof of the three bedroom is a flat corten edged dirt surface, a sliver of the falling slope, slicing horizontally outward toward the view. Two sliding fabric shading screens provide shade for the east terrace, and vertical protection for the glazed openings. The west side of the house on both levels is divided by a 1 meter thick steel cage with irregular rock stacked inside. Set back behind the rock is a butt-joined glass wall facing east, allowing filtered view through the rock, and allowing patterned sun through. The lower level contains the bedrooms, a private garden and pool with grotto.
