* Residential Architecture: Clifftop House in Maui by Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti

Residential Architecture: Clifftop House in Maui by Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti: “..The concept defines several ’houses’ under a common roof which also serves as a folded wooden deck and integrates the house with the landscape. Each separate ‘house’ is an U-shaped volume that works as a en-suite double room (bedroom plus bathroom) and opens up to the perfect ocean view..The roof concept is strongly related to the rough climate with loads of sun and strong ocean winds. The area of the roof is twice the size of the house, so the size of the covered outdoor space equals the size of the indoor space. It needs no air-conditioning, since it is cross ventilated throughout. The folded roof is carefully attached to the walls of U-shaped volumes and defines specific spaces..”  Includes video..
