At first glance, the Jauretche House looks very cold and sterile with the liberal use of steel in its façade, but this softens when interior lights are turned on. This metallic theme extends to the interior of the house.
White is used to create a feeling of wideness of space and it helps accentuate the other elements used in the interior of the house. The use of natural stone slabs and untreated floors further separates the Jauretche House from anything conventional we’d see in a house from within and without.
In conclusion, the Jauretche house provides a stark contrast as its minimalist form is emphasized by the conventional architecture of the buildings beside it.
