The problem was connected with the neighborhood houses which have a look-in the site. The Investor has wanted to have a not introverted house with opening towards the garden.

The solution was to create the principal terrace which is lee from three sides. In this way it became an intimate space for spending free time with friends during warm months.

Entering the building we occur in the center of the living area, between the living room and the kitchen (with view of the site's entrance) and the dining room. All of the rooms are opened on the above-mentioned terrace. Behind the living room there is an inhabitant's private area with bedrooms and bathrooms. Behind the kitchen there is an area for guests with a separated bathroom. A division of the space in this way gives an option for making a flat for old person with an individual enter. On the north side there is a garage for two cars and a technical rooms.
