Covering roughly 160 square meters, the house features a discreet exterior design to ensure the privacy of the owner.

From the outside, the three-story house looks like a seamless block.

The architect spared a third of the family lot for a kind of playground that seperates the house from the noise of the street.

The broad entrance provides plenty of natural sunlight.

The slope of the terraces leaves the house wide open to sight angles.
