COPPER HOUSE

Situated along the coast, and exposed to the full force of maritime corrosion, the Copper House is a work of tolerance, of accepting the forces of nature and converting them into patina. What begun as 18 tons of rolled shining copper is constantly evolving into a rich tapestry of browns, turquoise and ultra marines. With every passing season, the house acquires an additional layer of patina slowly becoming an integral part of its environment. 

Envisioned as a holiday home, the Copper House has evolved into a container of memories; recalling family and social events, as well as, the passing of seasons and the forces of nature. The project by Asaf Gottesman was completed in 2000.
