We received a commission from a married couple to design a house to be built on a small plot (with an 8-meter frontage and a depth of 30 meters) inserted within a dense and difficult context. The couple, whose children had already left home, asked us for a simple house, obstruction-free and with a strongly contemporary feel.

The layout is based on the idea of using the frontage and the rear extension without interruptions to give a sense of space even with the small area available.

Two axes were defined along the ends of the building, each measuring 1.5 meters wide. All of the services –bathrooms, kitchen, larders, and septic tanks –are grouped together at the south end; all the circulations are at the north. This enables a 5-by-5 meter modulated space between the two axes. Within this sequence of structures, two patios were arranged as a means of filtering the light.

Therefore the areas are connected to afford wide open views despite the compactness of the plot. The result is a spacious and bright house where patios can be enjoyed all the time.
