The remodeling, which took two long phases, demolished most of the existing structures. In fact, only the supporting frame was left from the old house, which became the basis for the project. In their work, the architects were guided by the requirements of the customer. First of all, they increased the size of the house by widening its boundaries and adding an extra level.
Dismantling some of the partitions that had fragmented the space into many inefficient rooms made it possible to completely reorganize the layout of the residence. Particular attention was paid to the design of the entrance area. The architects designed a long wide hallway leading from the street into the house. Its external wall is crossed by a series of long through holes that cancel out the feeling of enclosure.
They are particularly proud of the central atrium with a splendid swimming pool and roofed areas for relaxation. The tree growing in the middle of the boardwalk ensures the integrity of the architectural composition and its connection with the natural surroundings.
Each component of the residence's design is the epitome of calm and purity. This impression is largely due to the use of a light palette and natural textures in the decor.
