Text description provided by the architects. At the request of the client was examined how a high-quality new construction can complement the existing residential program.

The view of the green, wooded area is an important principle. It has opted for a transparent volume sufficient privacy protection. The client can fully enjoy the backyard through the transparent volume. The expansion provides space for a living room, dining area and a terrace.

By the slope of the terrain into the courtyard, the basement level gives out to the garden. The basement level, together with the volume on the floor, extended and acts as a concrete base for the transparent volume on top. Two covered parking spaces and a storeroom are provided there.
