The building was designed on the western bank of Lake Floreasca in order to meet the client's brief. Therefore, the design maximizes the sense of space by using a wide range of materials and colors which are uplifting and welcoming, even on a cold and grey winter day.
A double height central space with a mezzanine forms the social hub of the 2 homes, providing areas for cooking, eating, watching TV, listening to music or simply relaxing. The private areas are discretely separated from this space within two stacks of accommodation: one provides the clients with generous bedroom, bathroom and study areas, while the other houses the guest suites.
The sense of duality is provided by the fact that the two different houses have the same main functions.
The winter garden was supposed to cover the swimming pool (which was removed during the construction process) and links the two houses into one single unit. Moreover, fully controllable natural and artificial light enables the quality and sense of the space to be adjusted.
