Text description provided by the architects. The house consists of three separate sets: the amenities (lobby, office, laundry room, basement, garage), parts of collective life (living room, dining room, kitchen, which shall secure the room with parents want to close), and finally children's bedrooms, arranged around a multipurpose space. The methods and time of occupation are distinct, the different expectations: for the first feature, group life and reception for the second, privacy for the third.

Furthermore, this fragmentation comes into resonance with the context: it is more than one house but three volumes, like the heterogeneous neighbouring buildings. Due of a small terrain, they are superimposed.
