    Text description provided by the architects. Architectural planning and interior design for a house of 350 Sqm. Plot size 1000 sqm.

    The design of the house is based on 2 paths of thought - an architectural concept and an observation on the family as a community.

    Architecturally, our main goal was to allow as much as possible unrestricted flow between inside and outside, making the most of fresh air, garden views and natural day light. The ‘L’ shaped house, backing the street, wraps the garden and provides its inhabitants with privacy. It offers the possibility for each family member to pass freely from bedrooms and living areas directly to the garden on a joint path outside. While it allows freedom of movement, there is a clear view to the different parts of the house inside and out, which makes minding the children more relaxing and comfortable.

    Most of the house is on the ground with only a guest bedroom in the basement. The bedrooms are placed in the distance, directly in front of the entrance door, with a patio which bonds inside and out and acts as a subtle boundary between living and sleeping areas. It is a wide path, raised by a couple of stairs, providing comforting daylight all the day long.

    An intentional use of low key materials, and the design whcich backs the street, reflects the ideals of the clients who requested a high quality space, without standing out too much.
