The brief for this residential building was different than that of a regular house, because of
the requirements of the surface area and the number of families that will end up inhabiting
it. The client wants to live there with his 3 elderly sons and their families, and with his own
wife and youngest child.

Having considered this, we proposed
deviding the building in 2 layers: the
groundfloor (the base that will contain
the elders’ apartment and a common
area for all the families) and the first floor
(that will contain the 3 apartments of the
older sons). The factors that influenced
the project were the tight plot, the forest
bording it and the natural lighting.
We thus oriented the base and the 3
apartments in the optimal way according
to the cardinal points (while creating a
terrace facing south for each of them).
The final part was the pool, which we
moved from the 2nd floor (initial request)
to the groundfloor.
