The family home for two artists and their children is set in a garden between two existing houses. The floor plan is dictated by the tightness of the plot, the desire for privacy and the limited budget of the clients. The single storey house features an artist’s studio, living quarters with a large open terrace, two sets of bedrooms, each with its own interior atrium and a bicycle shed. The interior is carefully crafted in order to make the smallest possible floor plan still featuring functional and flexible layout. The house is built with a small variety of materials. Apart from the base plate which is made of concrete, the rest of the house is built out of wood. The house has a minimalist presence, emphasised by the façade clad in rough wood panels, treated with impregnation coat, giving it greenish tint. The wood boards are stacked with a precision that would be sufficient for the manufacture of furniture.
