It's not the window,
but its frame what counts...
"You can put a window worth thousands of dollars within an openning, but it is the frame, that 'concrete skin' surrounding it, which in the end adds value to that view..."
HOUSE 2, a high-end residence renovation, brings traditional origami (also papiroplexia in Spain) as a strong reference.
By bending and folding, new versions of window frames appear;
moreover, techtonics, architectural skin and language are put into question.
1,000 square feet are added to an existing house (formerly 3,800sf). This means: a new Masterbedroom (600sf) and new entrance to the home.
