house mvdr

 

The outside stair is both transit and living space. Amidst the dense urban fabric the half-open staircase interweaves the living rooms on the first floor with the garden, creating both a shelter for the writer-resident and a privacy screen for the sauna on the ground floor. The staircase slightly folds open midway. The walls grow higher, the steps grow wider, a quiet place to relax flourishes.
