TAKA+PARTNERS took over the architectural design, the interior design, the façade design and the landscape design of the building and site, as well. The building is comprised of ground floor and three levels and is to house two families. The ground floor composes a large common area for all tenants of the building. The first floor hosts an independent family apartment and the second and third flood set together another apartment unit. Key points of the design are the smooth function of all building levels, the orientation of all areas to the unobstructed view, the sense of privacy of the users and the provision of a calm interior and exterior environment of the house. The design team chose to highlight specific areas of the residence, such as the space in the fireplace, the dining room, the kitchen volume etc., with upholstery, special materials and lighting fixtures. The landscape and the entrance are designed with the privacy and security of the users of the building in mind.
