Text description provided by the architects. 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.
