atelier house, delft
a small studio house, self-contained within a group of other exhibition and conference buildings, stands in the expansive, flat, dutch landscape. the red corten steel of its outer skin makes it recognizable in the green grass from far away. the crisp rasterization of the steel slabs creates a rhythmic façade, punctuated by flush-mounted openings that are also cut into the roof cladding as skylights. thus two rooms bathed in light have been created, radiating great diversity and therefore a vast amount of liveliness, too.
