The house was built on a hard, oblong, narrow, trapezoidal plot in a zone of 750 sqm, the house surface itself is 250 sqm including a public space, a work space and four bedrooms.

The architectural concept in putting the plan of the ground floor is the  creation of a continual cross-shaped space which creates an open view line in one direction along the length of the plot, and a view line from the entrance to the dining room window in the opposite direction. In the center of the house there is a double space that allows a view between the main floor and  the public entrance floor.

The unique contours of the house, follow the contours of the plot and allowing the tenants to utilize their construction rights, despite of  the challenging shape of the plot.
