The property is a two storey semi-detached house post war constrcution in the middle of a row of terrace houses. Our clients, a young couple, came to us to redesign the ground floor as the previous layout was not suitable for their style of living. The areas were dark and segragated and they ended up not using them at all. The house had previously a rear poorly made and non-insulated conservatory raised three steps from the rear garden, and a rear extension with ancillary spaces.

August 18th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Architekti Sebo Lichy

The family house is located in a steep terrain on a narrow land in a densely built-up part of the town. These conditions have determined the first architectural constraints. On the one hand, this place offers a panoramic view of the city, on the other hand a view of the green, tranquil gardens and fruit trees. The house is artfully fitted into the hillside to fully utilize the possibilities of the space.
