The plot is situated in the vicinity of a busy motorway. The perimeter wall creates a peculiar type of space where the boundary between the inside and the outside is blurred. The whole space is divided into three different zones: the house and two gardens, each with its own character. The smaller garden is located in the south, together with the entrance group, and is overlooked from the children’s room and the guest room.

The bigger garden, in its turn, is located in the northern part of the plot. It has a terrace, a swimming pool, and a lawn, and it is overlooked from the master-bedroom and from all common living spaces of the house. The house serves as communication and visual connection between the two gardens.

 

 

 

Being a typologically different type of space, the house, nonetheless, seamlessly merges within the surrounding environment.

Additional skylight makes it possible to create an atmosphere of an “open-air” mini-courtyard in the living room.
