Concrete 11 by Cage Atelier is a residential architecture where urban and landscape integration is ensured, as the materiality of the facades leaves the volume sober and camouflaged in the terrain. As the site was a terrain with a steep slope, it was possible to let the volume function in two overlapping layers: one that serves as a base and is embedded in the terrain, and another that levitates over the first.
Cage Atelier is an architectural design firm founded in 2016. The relationship the designer has with the client, as well as the location and timing of where and when they will produce their work, are their key concerns. They contend that architecture and design must coexist in order to share ideas and develop new connections to the resources the world has to offer.
