The pivot house is all about the refurbishment and extension of two existing houses.

The two houses are family homes and the extension should be the shared kitchen accompained to an exterior space. The extension becomes the "pivot" and the communication of the two spaces. The difficult part of the project is the base height difference between the two existing houses. We decided the kitchen to be in the same base height as one of the houses, and in the other one we created a threshold space so that there is privacy but also connection. The new volume is imagined to be in wood planks, cost efficient but also a modern play of the vernacular architecture of the region,
