Text description provided by the architects. The main idea of the project was to design an optimal land use compatible with the investor's programme and the conditions of land building scheme. The plot is very small ca.600m2 with the entrance from the south,so with common parts we are opening to the south and west. Additionally from the South I withdraw elevation on the ground floor, creating a terrace with arcades thus it fell back farther from the street. I wanted to make this house very simple in plan and form, referring to the classic house. By using precious linings of brick with concrete, wood for warming the perception,titanium-zinc sheet as well as large glazed five-meter I created the impression of modern structure in a classic shape. For a breakdown of the length of the roof I used a one bay on each side what additionally ameliorate the block and create a more usable space in the attic.
