Fan of minimalist houses? You’ve come to the right place! Today, we present you Copper House II, a projects we found on Archdaily, realized by S tudio Mumbai. The house was built according to this logic: two distinct blocks, varying in width by a foot, separated by the stone-paved courtyard on the ground. They blocks are united by the roof at the upper level and they function as discrete personal spaces, one is a singular space of bedroom and bath, the other has an additional study. At the ground level, the main space functions as the deck of the house, overlooking the landscape and the courtyard, creating a different views. This spatial strategy also allows for varying levels of communication, visual and otherwise, between the upper and lower spaces of the house. The walls are finished in a celadon-coloured traditional plaster, smooth like human skin, and crackled like the ancient Chinese glaze.
