The concept of superstructure and extension of a single-dwelling house took the desire to preserve the existing volume of the building and at the same time improve the functionality of the interior. The guiding principle of the entire intervention is a set of living spaces, which are designed as ambitious orthogonal skylights at the investor’s request. Reconstruction of the roof above the garage enables the expansion of the living space and the creation of a large and partially covered terrace, which completes the axis of the living space. According to the logic of the lower floor, more private rooms are organized in the attic, where the emphasis is on functionality. Separation along the axes allows the investor maximum privacy and peace.
Of particular importance to the space is the dining room, which is meant as a central space for meeting and socializing. The dining room is designed as a two-storey space with a gallery in which the studio is located. Between the dining room and the living room, a spacious partition wall is designed, which can be opened and closed if necessary, together with wooden panels that allow greater intimacy between the dining room and the living room, which is designed as a winter garden.
The interiors are bright and warm, in a chosen combination of white color and light wood. The exterior of the house is clean and sharp, to which dark lamella elements are added, in order to shade the outdoor living areas.
