Text description provided by the architects. The project consisted of the demolition of an old building (preserving only its streetfront facade) and the design of a new house. In order to create an impression of spaciousness on the small lot, the ground floor was devided lengthwise and the construction concentrated on one side, taking the fullest possible advantage of the depth of the lot for the garden.

The upper floor consists of a volume turned at an angle to break up the orthogonal character of the design. Scale and perspective were manipulated by inclining planes, treating textures, and varying the window modules to achieve effects that underline the initial idea. 

The house has a living- and dining room, bedroom, study, kitchen, and bathroom on the ground floor, and a master bedroom, closet, bathroom, and terrace are on the upper level.
