This design is totally different from the previous design. It may not
be as efficient and compact, but it's rather more luxurious. However
what both have in common is that they comprise out of one single volume
with an internal garage.
The low level of the gutter poses some limitations, wich made it nessasary
to add two large dormers. I'd rather didn't add the one at the front,
because I feel that it breaks the roof shape to much. Unfortunately this
dormer was nessasry in order to get enough headroom and daylight, any absence
of this would have been totally unacceptable.
The house has an extra room on the ground floor, wich is ideal as a study, play
room or homeoffice. The internal garage is accessible from the hall, and is
large enough for one of those pesky SUV's.
The living comprises of two parts with a level difference, wich continues into
the garden. The kitchen has a semi-open devider, so that some contact is
possible with the living and the garden.
The garden has a conversation pit and a pond, the resultant level differences
kind of create a yin yang unity with the house.
"Special features" of this design are:
- Several conversation pits, one inside the house and one outdoors.
- Loggia balcony at the left side of the house.
- A fireplace.
