The greatest challenge was to achieve the desired sense of lightness and void and at the same time confirm to the urban environmental requirements. The design aspired to create a dialogue between solid and void, building and landscape features. This dialogue is evident from the street as visitor walk along the covered path through the front courtyard. The solidity of one volume is put together against lightness of the other; the landscape and built elements fuse with one another. The outside permeates the interior and the home is enveloped with natural light and ventilation.
