querosene house by alvaro puntoni

consisting of three storeys, the space is defined from the north face structure,
a parallel free wall which houses a library containing 7,500 books and another parallel block.
all closed spaces contain rooms, bathrooms and storage areas. to access the wall of books
metal platforms are connected to the service block. the design takes advantage of the difference
between the street level and the lower level of the plot, by positioning the living room in the lower
level which ensures the required privacy and maintains the view of the distant landscape through
the void.
