A family house is designed for the steep northwest slope, its lapidary form coming from the cube contrasting with the rugged terrain.
The abstract character of the house is supported by a simple composition of the facades, while the vivid brick surface provides the necessary detail.
The comfortable living for a family of four consists of three floors – an entrance and a garage on the partly sunken ground floor, a social space with a kitchen on the first floor, and three bedrooms with a bathroom on the second.
Simple landscaping makes it easy to walk from the entrance through the terrace to the outdoor pool in the highest, southeastern part of the garden.
Linking the interior to the garden in the middle level is provided by a spacious terrace adjacent to the south front, partly covered by receding glass.
The same extraction of the basic material on the ground floor creates a leeward, with concrete walls lining the outside staircase connecting the two planted corners.
