Residents can climb onto the net from a top-floor landing and there's room for a couple of people to sit down at once.

Sliding glass doors on one side of the hammock open out to a terrace with a view out to sea.

The architects installed the net during a renovation of the whole two-storey apartment and have also added wooden floors in each room.

It was our intention to play with the light that strongly flows into the apartment merging it with new program needs.

The relation between voids, volumes and the function among then was the prime project drive aiming to create fine detailing while suggesting new surprising spaces and features to be used and lived in a daily basis.

    What if…

    • r.e.m.

      Yes, that would hurt.

  • Looks very nice for small private house.

  • Aaron

    A much nicer solution than a handrail, although I can think of more entertaining uses than magazine reading.

  • Rob

    Don’t you hate it when they never complete the build… where is the lady from the drawings?
