The new building brings a contemporary looks to the typical  pitched roof houses on the  surroundings. The clients, a young couple with two small children, wanted an informal home connected to the outside area, so they could comfortably entertain friends and with plenty of space for children to play.

Since keeping the perimeter of the existing building, we create a set of composition of three volumes. Two with pitched roof house shape with sheet metal roof and a third one floor with sheet metal on the walls. The final construction looks like a small contemporary village.
