Threshold staircase

Connect the house with the lower floor, that was the initial order.

We placed the staircase outside the house, open to the landscape views, and enlarged its landing to turn it into an entrance gallery. A threshold that transforms the way of accessing the house. It has no definite use but the opportunities seem multiple.

The lightness contrasts to the existing massif construction. The interior, cladded with natural wood, is a homely space that participates of the natural light and the vegetation of its surroundings, framed to enhance the beginning and end of the staircase.
