that couch/ table is very innovative (i hope ralph makes a fortune out of marketing it/ variations). lots to love about this housing project, not least that it is eco. i couldn't help thinking it is stronger than the barcelona house (for all you bauhaus fans), and is actually a residence. my only criticism is that i would have liked to see the stairs aligned to the back wall (which i believe is 5mt deep?) and the tv etc could have worked under it, rather than bite into the 4 mt width, and/ or have a glass rail, but I'm no engineer. probably some the spaces should be white, or mirrored to capture a feeling of space. and I'm not sure about that glass screen protecting the basin while ralph showers. sounds like a cleaning nightmare in the making, maybe just a tiled wet room?. love the roof top. somehow seems more spacious than the rest. would be good if it is enclosable during mild/ cool weather, to really use as a living space. overall, beautiful project.
