PINE BUILDING is the ideal place to live in, away from the crowdedness of the city.
It is located in Bickfaya, in the heart of pine forest, providing the natural green element of the typical countryside lifestyle.
The form is a simple rectangular form and the building envelop is influenced by pine trees skin. The front elevation, parallel to the road, is mainly an opaque volume creating private spaces in the residence. The back elevation is designed to be transparent with the environment, with large openings towards the view, and to have indoor – outdoor visual relations, integrating the nature into the living space.
The project consists of four residential floors and a pilotis floor. Each floor contains two apartments of 110m² each. Wood, stone, glass and red brick are applied to the exterior finishing.
