C House is a detached house situated in a low density residential area.

There are two primary demands of clients: the first is to be able to have a direct relationship with the landscape outside from every room of the house, the second is to place the sleeping area to an elevated level above the garden.

The solution developed by the project is to bring the garden on the first floor of the house, while lifting up the sleeping area to allow the park to get into the heart of the living area. The house is designed as a one floor court residence which, starting from the north east, rises to reach a second level.

Kitchen, living room and dining area are projected in the park at the ground level, as well as study and bedrooms are raised to touch again the roof garden, which rises up following the trend of an inclined spiral.
