House Wiva by Open Y Office(OYO)

June 23, 2014

The extension of a private house captures its surroundings.The inhabitants wanted an extension that was flexible enough to be transformed in time to a separate unit with its own bed and bathroom.OYO emphasised the contrast between the new shape and the old volume, which used to be an post office. You can see the concrete floating above the garden near the house.From the point of view of the residents, the extension creates exciting views from the new living room of the house. The two volumes are connected with a light wooden footbridge that functions as entrance but also clarifies the different volumes.
