* Residential Architecture: Grecia House by Isay Weinfeld

Residential Architecture: Grecia House by Isay Weinfeld: “..From the main entrance, one approaches the house – set at the back of the land – by foot, up and through a wooded area, and across a wide garden. The house comes then fully to sight: 4 joined but distinct blocks, respectively covered with pebble-blasted concrete plaques (living quarters), exposed concrete (office), wood planks (entertaining area) and sand-blasted concrete plaques (dining and service areas)..The location of the house was also defined by (huge) existing trees. An important part of the concept, the decision to build small patios and gardens around them allows for broad natural light and ventilation inside the house, helping to keep temperature cool and pleasant green views whichever way one looks at..”  Significant indoor/outdoor and materials and visual texture sensibility; luxurious interior volumes and amenities; natural light, social sensibility..
