The Single Family House is located on a piece of land situated among other houses. The choice of architectural elements, including their shapes and materials used, was strongly influenced by regulations applicable to landscape preservations. The result is a house of a type that features a host of traditional architectural elements on the one hand, and an open layout on the other.
The house is one-storeyed with a residential attic. Enclosing walls as well as the roof envelope are made from self-supporting sandwich-type panels, that ensure excellent thermal-insulating properties of the house with no thermal bridges.
Sliding translucent red shutters on the facades correspond to the flexible layout of the house. Changes in the position of the shutters and illumination outside and inside the house change the appearance of the individual facades and the atmosphere within.
