Light In The Trees

Website

How to open the building to the canal view (east side, morning light) and keep the head in the trees? 

This sailing boat design office wanted an eco friendly image, different from the high tech look it usually shapes.  

The loose soil where the building is anchored needs micropiles 18m deep and a light wooden framework on stilts, 2 x 100m2.

The beams extension generate a cantilevered terrace on the east side, and create sun breakers to control the light getting in the offices. The pivoting slats along the façade give a visual vibration from the canal when arriving by boat.
