A white plastered house profiles itself as a block-shaped object to the rear, being supported by the cellar and with two light supporting points to the front. The corbelling at the front creates a light tension to the narrow access road and underlying functions. The concrete drawer or slope in the landscape with the stately staircase gives access to the central glazed beam with entrance hall and lateral carports, as a result of which you almost slide into the house.

The stairwell is the pivot of the house and subdivides the space in a front and rear zone as a result of which all spaces enjoy maximum visibility and sunlight. Through this parents and children obtain their own territory. The window areas all border to the edges of the space and touch the twisted line of the plastering which folds like a light silhouette around the space and wraps the house like the skin of a complex program.
