There was a little villa on top of the extremely steep plot, which didn’t correspond with the owners‘ conception. Therefore, they have decided to build a terraced house and to dwell in a new comfortable apartment.
The concept of terraced structure allowed to assign a roof garden to each ﬂat. This way, it was possible to build the quality of living similar to a family house but „town-like inspissated“ without huge demands for ground space required by the current building of family house colonies in the suburb porridge. The house is divided into 4 ﬂats, of which one ﬂat is an upper maisonette.
There is a garage for eight cars, the entry lobby and small cellars for each ﬂ at on the street level ﬂoor. The lift moves through the house and opens directly into each ﬂat; the stairway is located outside the house. Three lower ﬂats have terraces looking east and south, while the upper ﬂat has the terrace directed to the East, and connected to a private garden on the western side.
