This residence for an artist couple and their family was located on a small site within a creative commune. The house was spread across three levels with the ground dedicated to their studio and office. The house is tied together by a large and expansive double height balcony. It is protected by deep overhangs and serves as the primary gathering space for the house. The stairway is another focal element that provides a space of dramatic height where they can display their art, making the house not just a space to live and work in, but also a gallery to display their work.
