This house will be positioned on a narrow lot on a pastoral street in an old community, surrounded by estates of varying styles, and tall, old, lush green trees. The clients, a couple and their three children all in their teens, wanted to create their own private environment, with a relaxed, but not rural atmosphere, and an “overseas” touch. Professional needs led to the parents' desire for complete separation and privacy from the children’s area, direct access to the yard and swimming pool, and the ability of comfortably working from home.
The house is planned to have two levels and a tile roof. The ground floor includes the living area, a shielded room (MAMAD) that serves as a guest room with an adjacent bathroom, and the parental unit, which in addition to the master bedroom, also includes a washroom, a walk-in closet, a sitting area, and a small study. The ground floor encircles the family swimming pool, which can be seen through large openings in the living area and the master bedroom. The upper level includes the three children's bedrooms, a family area and a service room. A large balcony overlooking the pool allows the children to enjoy their own private outdoor area. The children’s section of the house is not located directly above the parents’ area.
The chosen style reflects the taste of the household members, who wished to stay away from contemporary design trends, embracing instead a traditional look with classical characteristics. The styled roof beams, the framed paned windows, and the cornice that encircles the house, all enhance the impact of the design.
