The suggested design interprets the local building legislations in an intelligent way. The prescribed roof form is integrated in the whole building through using a uniform material as well for the roof and the façade. The material, copper plate, is chosen in order to get a lively façade image through the patina created by weather conditions.

Our aim was to transform the existing building in that way to create a distinct spatial structure but at the same time a variety and generosity. As the centre of the house a double-height living room with a kitchen, a dining area and a gallery was suggested. Through that gallery the roof terrace which is placed on the highest point of the building is reached. From here one enjoys a great view over the city, but is protected by the opacity of the railing which functions as a visual cover.
