A privileged home visually immersed with a continuous aerodynamic facade, drawn through elliptical traces maximizing interior space while minimizing the volumetric impact on the site, Casa Balint make gazes blur the topography of the place, but revere the curved nature and lateral limits of this truly sublime structure.
The interior space of the house is articulated through a central void in which the core of communication is located. The service spaces, the facilities and the kitchen, allow orthogonalizing the curved layout of a ground floor open to the garden. The upper floor with the bedrooms and the basement floor open to the patio endow the house with confined spaces.
The concrete structure of the ground floor supports by four supports the cover arch from which hangs the floor of the night zone. This structure is covered by a monolithic ventilated facade made with a Solid Surface that with simple curvature and without the need to thermoform it adapts to the geometry of the piece. The rest of the materials go from white to black through all grays. All aspects of this incredible edifice are superimposed on the singular narrative that this transforming environment is a space to relax and perceive the exclusivity of architectural privilege.
