Casa SB follows the patio typology, with two wings on the side.

The land is the last available plot. Being at the periphery of the settlement, its north side faces the forest. The house, therefore, acts as a ‘bridge’ between nature and the frenzied suburbia.

The house is designed as a patio with wings, like a bird openly embracing its surroundings. However, its street-side façade looks almost aloof and unsociable. Built as a fence, the house keeps the outside where they belong – outside.

A clean, simple facade is one of the house's strengths.

The entire house is clad in plain timber planks. All else that are unnecessary had been excluded. This simplicity in design gives Casa SB its architectural strength.
