Project’s description: A flow is created through the house, walking down the stair in the morning, a glimpse of the garden and the weather outside, a choise of taking the door leading to the back garden in the east, with the morning sun. These connections continues through out the house, acts of movements, a glance of the sky, and a trace of cooking aroma travelling to the mezzanine.
The square plan is divided in closed and open spaces, and vertical openings in two diagonal corners. Closed parts containing private rooms, storage, laundry and bath room, open parts will be used for dining, playing and hanging out. Tactile, natural materails in birch, pine and terrazzo will dominate the open space, accompained by the colourful painted walls of the closed spaces, and kitchen/wardrobe islands.
