The Terms of Reference requested that a concept be developed of a house with two apartments for the Owner's daughter and son.
We have accepted a concept with two two-level apartments with three-side orientation. Each apartment has a direct exit on the surrounding ground from the living area over a covered terrace. The ground floor accommodates: entrance area with toilet, dining room with kitchen and living area with covered terrace. The parents’ bedroom with closet and bathroom and two bedrooms sharing the same bathroom are on the first floor.
The house looks like a semidetached house.

The structural walls are made of 25 cm thick porotherm clay blocks, the intermediate floor area is 20 cm reinforced concrete slab. Demit façade system with styrofoam is 5 cm thick.
