The rear building of the house, dating from the early 20th century, is no longer adapted to the needs of the client or the demands of today’s living comfort. The new multipurpose room, with a maximum sense of space, the various activities taken in the foreground and absent themselves more to draw. Central to the room, the table is placed as a symbol of everyday life. The three monumental canvases perforate the new room and light each on a different part of the house and its surroundings.

The two horizontal frames in the roof allow light to deep into the existing house and both offer a different view on the rear. Through extending the material and color outward, a unit is created. Relations with outside are strengthened. It opted for the cooking area and sink to store in closets. The island thus betrays its function. We try in this way an almost abstract space where the light can write her poetry on the walls. In the main volume only the strictly necessary interventions occurred.

The existing bathroom was too small in proportion to the house. It was decided to split this into two quality areas. At the site of the old bathroom was the toilet and shower fitted. The ceiling of the shower was replaced by a glass of 2m ² which a magnificent view is released. The bathroom has been moved to the top floor. The furniture is a concatenation of a sink, a bathtub and a toilet.
