This is a 4-level house built for a family of 4 – a couple and 2 teenage kids. Very informal people, they wanted a warm, comfortable house where they could all host friends and have fun together.

From the street a few steps up, one enters the house on ground level. Wide living areas – sitting, dining and TV rooms – were designed all in succession and open onto the garden, the patio and even the pool so as to allow for full integration between spaces, and interaction between guests.

Privacy is yet possible to get in this house, as large doors may slide out from recesses in the walls and separate rooms as necessary.

Family bedrooms and a private sitting room were placed on the first floor, while roof top was turned into a large terrace for overview of the surroundings.

    I agree with everybody!!!
    This is simply amazing!
    And by the way Jubair, Kogan and Weinfeld have worked together in some projects, maybe that’s why you say it is similar.

    nice house but with some strange features : main entry is problematic , a visitor invades privte space , immediately enters the living room and has to use the sliding window . on the upper floor one has to walk about 15 meters from the master bedroom to the nearest toilet. but overall very nice layout .

    Dear Daniel,
    if you pay attention on the Ground Floor Plan, you’ll notice a regular opening door inside the first sliding door (window), so, when a visitor invades the private space he does not has to use all the sliding doors to enter the living room, he can simply use the regular one.

    Dear Filipe,
    i have payed close attention to the drawing. i have noticed the regular integrated door . i was not talking about the technical aspect but to the fact that the entrance is to direct . there is no private entrance hall. you enter the living room directly . that might be fine with the clients . there isn’t one “correct” way to design. thank you for your respons
