60 Himalayan birch trees positioned on the terrace and in the garden. They are the focus of Himalayan Birch House, a residential project by the studio Stéphane Herrgott Architecte, which plays on the interaction between light and shadow, telling a profound way of interpreting architecture as art.
Structural elements draw attention to trees and their shadows. The windows frame the trees like paintings in an art gallery. The transparency and translucency of the materials penetrate the light through the net producing the moiré effect as well as through the white fabric curtains, which produce the shoji shadow effect.
Nature is also the protagonist of the interiors; the light gently touches the shapes passing through the spaces dominated by the white color and integrates all the wooden elements. In this context Mina stainless steel taps underline the simplicity and purity of the shapes.
The wall mixers of the Stiriana series have been installed in the main bathroom and in the guest bathroom. The Stiriana series products have also been used in showers. For the kitchen the new Three has been chosen with extractable external shower. Finally, a Giotto ground rod combines perfectly with the freestanding bathtub, enhancing its sinuous forms, and then also finds its way into the outdoor spaces with the floor-standing washbasin version.
