The house is owned by a single family , which consists of two adults and two children. Homeowners desire is a residence where the quality , organization and function spaces maximized for the welfare of family members .

Integration to the site was first created by the implementation of the building and it side access, which on the one hand preserves the existing slopes and on the other hand allows the addition of volume to the existing buildings on the right side . Flat roof volume is also a contributing factor. Options in a dark brick with two tones , ie very dark brown to brick , gray for zinc , blue stone , and window frames that allow the harmonious integration with the surrounding landscape . Town planning constraints contribute to the overall aesthetic of the building . The possibility for a flat roof on the main volume is why the zinc roof was built for the slopes .

Because of low energy design , interior temperature remains constant caused by a double flow ventilation and is also what allows the interconnection of the internal volumes . The living rooms , which serves as a heat retainers, is separated from the mezzanine with a wall . Excess heat is that it can spread up through the open space . Interior areas and volumes with different heights also allow for better ventilation and an improved sense of room . The extension of the house is built with equal consideration to the existing interior as well as the exterior and landscape sites .
