| CONCEPT

This house includes two rectangular parallelepiped volumes, one white the other black. The white volume has two stories, the black volume two stories with basement. The two volumes have different floor levels; therefore these spaces stretch to each other through the skipped floors. The house has a simple plan from the basement level to the rooftop, however the spaces unfold rather complicatedly.
