From the architect. The house scheme, designed for a just married couple, protect the living spaces from a low visual interest street at the front façade and dispose its night and day rooms facing a big courtyard. This courtyard separates the house 3.5 m from the plot dividing wall, all along its east orientation. This movement allows the existence of a small back garden in the ground floor and a long private terrace on the first floor.

The parallel configuration of the entrance from the street level introduces a different value on this type of houses, making it unique and special from the rest.

The hall, a semi-outside gardened courtyard with a stairs, drives to the terrace on the first floor. The landlords gain access to a dark wood decked floor that works as a “summer living room” and an extension of the first floor, where the living and dining room, the kitchen and a toilet are clearly set.

The second floor, or “night floor” contains two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sloping ceiling study-bedroom. On the ground floor is located the garage and a multi functional living room both spaces divided by a big wood sliding door. A sort of storage and auxiliary rooms of the house complete the program on the ground floor.

The different floors are connected by a stair which is crowned with a vertical and well–faced fanlight that fills with light the spaces placed away to the courtyard.

Hey, nice house, clear and beautiful idea...

sullka · October 09, 2009

As everybody has pointed, excellent project.

I would say though, that you can easily fit a service bedroom, a full bathroom plus the laundry room, in the current laundry/half bath area.

COngrats to the architects.

Awesome what you can do with a lot of creativity, a small lot and a limited budget. Love this design, amazingly well executed and quite straightforward in approach. I agree with João, it's a dream house.

João · October 06, 2009

with just small changes in the interior, this would be my dreamhouse... loved it!!!

stepienybarno · October 05, 2009

excellent project. The house is fantastic!

arnold · October 05, 2009

nice house. This house is:
- 70% - XX 70-80 postmodernizm;
- 30% - these days architectural solutions.

JULIO TRUJILLO · October 05, 2009

FELICIDADES, ME ENCANTARÍA VIVIR AHÍ. MUY BIEN RESUELTA LA DISTRIBUCIÓN GENERAL.

Andrew Geber · October 04, 2009

wow, real beauty

seeing that there is no front or back yard they really had to be creative, and they pulled it off

being a petrolhead i especially like that they didn't hide the cars and you can have a clear view of them from the playroom

wow

I like this house a lot in plan as well as in section. The entrance at the streetlevel is very clever and it makes a great composition!

The groundfloor can optionally be used as an extra apartment.

If the buildingcost was actually 240.000... well done...

Oliver · October 04, 2009

wow ... cool clean concept - beautiful ... stairs are functional but could be nicer ;) ... like in pic four
