The family that owns the house has a very active social life, both within their family as close friends, so the space to develop this activity are of great size, such as living room, kitchen, attic, and the terrace. All these spaces are connected visually and spatially, like one big social expansion space.Kitchen, living room and terrace in summer, can be transformed into one large meeting space, sliding doors and windows are opened to allow the connection of interior and exterior space. By contrast, in parallel, private grounds are isolated from social activity spaces, always preceded by a gap before entering the bedroom. Each cell functions as an independent within the housing scheme. Thus the public and private activities can be developed smoothly into one place.
