This project is located on a narrow and sloping plot, on the edge of a village. The way the house had to be laid out wasn’t an easy staff since the regulations and neighbourhood limits were restricting… to avoid a very long and narrow house, the project is splited in three parts, on semi levels using the natural slope.

The first part is on the same level as the road and includes the main hall, the laundry, the play-room, the garage, the cellar and the geothermal energy local.

The second one is 80cm above the slot with large views on the outstanding landscape all around, in north, east and west directions. It comprises the living spaces: living room, kitchen and dining room.

The third one is on top of the first part and offers rooms and bathrooms. This process answers to the very initial demand of the clients who wished a one-level-house.

The 3 parts of the house meet in a suspended patio which distributes the different spaces, creates multiple relations between them and articulates one to another. The patio is the central knot between the living spaces, the main hall and the rooms.

    Cool. I like the way it embraces the context/landscape but also kind of ignores it at the same time!!

    The interior architecture is quite good. I have to say that at 1200 euros/m2 this is quite an expensive airstream house.

    trhut. i don't know where you live but compared to the average building cost in NL or DE €1200 is pretty normal, maybe on the cheap side.

    1200 €/m2 is a fantastic price!
