House F, Rameldange (L)

House F, Rameldange (L)

The split-level layout developed for this long, narrow hillside property sees House F rise in correlation with the slope it stands on. Three one-piece architectural concrete walls extend lengthwise into the slope to form the basic framework of the house and its garden. These walls are primarily plain, and only feature those apertures necessary for the letting in of light or the provision of access around the property. Partition walls, by contrast, are mostly fully glazed or finished in white plaster.
