The house’s overall design reflects the terrain of the site. The building is designed as a low energy green house recessed into the ground. Glass façades on the southern and western sides make the house perfectly sunny. Spaces recessed into the ground get natural light thanks to a system of skylights.
The layout is based on the 3.5 m module. The house is divided into dwelling and social areas. The social area with an entrance to the terrace is located in the southern part of the building. It comprises a relaxation area, a kitchen with a dining room, a pantry with a technical room, a toilet and a wardrobe. The dwelling area is recessed into the slope in the northern and western part of the building. It comprises a parents’ bedroom, wardrobe, bathroom, children’s room and a study. At the entrance there is a storeroom for keeping gardening and maintenance tools.
