From the architect. This project is a house built in new residential area that has no special character. This situation made the architect wonder if most of the people don't want anything special or if they just want an ordinary house on an ordinary plot. As an architect, his solution to a social situation like this was this house, Ordinary House.

Externally the house appears as a simple volume with prefabricated windows. This means that this house also does not stand out from all the other houses, and also the cost is kept low by avoiding the use of made to order windows and materials.

The architect carefully designed the proportion and layout of the windows. As a result, he manages to give a special effect to the exterior of this house, while still merging it into the surrounding area. Although the exterior is simple, inside the house he included lots of things to enrich the lifestyle of those that will live in it. To design a good quality house based on "the ordinary", but with the added sense that only an architect could have, shows the architects role in modern society.
