The house is a conceptual translation of three linked spaces which attempt to internally manifest and unite in the distinct functions and spaces. They are almost like sculptures which interweave into a multiple clear-cut and plain construction of plan by means of maximum transparency, colour, expression and lighting. The dark grey basic space contains all functions of the house and is flanked by the internal circulation or ‘catwalk’ from the street in the light grey space. The green box at the back links both grey spaces and attempts to artificially re-concile these with the garden. The eaves with steel terrace allow the dynamics of the house to materialise like a signal and beacon to the neighbourhood and entrance door.
