No one expects such a modern house behind the classical facade of this house. Also the amount of different levels is something that is not necessarily expected by visitors. However, these levels were already present in the house, our design has exposed them and connected all levels. The connection with the garden is always a challenge in these kind of housing. The wide stairs descends from the living area to the garden level and thereby establishes the connection between living space, kitchen and the garden. Which resulted in a spacious ground floor with lots of light and enough space for the clients’ dog!
