About object:

The solid image of the residential house is created by composing two rectangular shapes and connecting them with a transparent axis. The architects create a subtle conversation between the environment and the internal space. The main façade meets with a clear directing connection, which at the same time is a wedge. The openwork minimalistic horizontal shape placed between two bright volumes creates as if a roof above the main entrance. On the inside this connection merges into a spacious hallway and highlights the openwork staircase. The activeness and dynamics of the later is emphasized using a transparent glass plane, which continues on both floors.

The forms visible from the outside represent the internal structure. The ground floor of the higher shape includes the zones of the kitchen, dining room and living room. According to the authors of the project, this as if highlights the importance of the living room in the lives of the people. The first floor of this part of the building contains two rooms for children. The visually lower shape includes spaces, which require more peace and quiet: the office and the parents’ bedroom. The lowest part of the building contains auxiliary premises and a garage.

The connection between the building and the environment is created using not only conventional means of expression and the terrace stretching from the living room, but also the roof. Under the roof there is a cosy space for recreation and peace, which as if invites to admire the forest around or the wide horizon beyond it.
