Terraced four-story house with rooftop terrace.

On the first floor, the main living area was visually separated into kitchen, dining room, and living room through the use of simple partitions. The hallway was illuminated by a horizontal ribbon window. On the second floor were the children’s rooms, the master bedroom, and a bathroom with WC. The office and guest room on the top floor opened up onto a rooftop terrace with a sunbathing area and concrete containers for greenery. The stairwell was illuminated from above by a glass-brick ceiling.
