Our client’s requirement was to create a hybrid between a larger more comfortable dwelling with 4 parking places and a family house with a small garden, with two terraces and with its own garage. Our final proposal was also affected by the fact that the land drops down of a floor per its total length, i.e. of circa 3 meters.
There were built 21 family houses in the locality divided into 3 sections. It is going on three types of family house, namely a terraced house and left and right end corner houses. Street space is bordered by garages, which are getting towards the front part of the parcel with consequent creation of intimate zone used for relax, which is closely connected with the dwelling space. The house has three over ground floors with a terrace on each of them. There can be found a living room connected with the kitchen on the 1st floor and two children’s rooms with a smaller workroom as well as a bathroom with toilets on the 2nd floor. A separated parents‘ unit with its own terrace and hygienic facilities is situated on the 3rd floor. We have decided to brighten garage gates occupying quite a large area from the aspect of its contact with the street graphically.
