Called NIU N70, the house emerged as part of NIU series that explore innovative construction systems and high-quality living to increase precision in the materialization of architecture.
Built based on deadlines and certain costs, the team of Fran Silvestre Arquitectos showed how these types of houses can also improve the quality of human environments, making them more sustainable and healthy.
Drawn on an elongated layout, the house includes a bedroom, or night zone, social spaces, or day zone, along the other. The team placed wet areas in the center that divides the house into two areas. The house is fully perceptible from outside at night due to its transparent façade.
"The N70 is the smallest model of the NIU project. The wet areas in which all the facilities are located divides the day zone from the night zone," said Fran Silvestre Arquitectos.
"A new version of a known typology that continues to fascinate us."
Fran Silvestre Arquitectos was founded in 2005 by architect Fran Silvestre. The firm is known with clean, minimal and all-white residential typologies.
