Text description provided by the architects. The existing and already several times refurbished private house lies on the Római fürdő area of Budapest (meaning Roman Bath). Its owners are enthusiastic fanciers of contemporary art. Parallel to the street both sides of the building have been enlarged by the architects. By doing this, together with the light weight superstructure and the low-pitched roof their aim was to construct as compact a building volume as possible.

The form of the building was inspired by the Roman atrium houses, and hence the inward inclination of the roof is a reinterpretation of the roman era’s building traditions. The usage of contemporary materials not only reflects the structure of the enlarged house but also the openness of the owners towards new and unfamiliar architectural solutions.
