The house is situated on a site between outer and central areas of the city. The area has rare qualitiesfor a city plot, large deciduous trees, ash, maple and oak, combined with a local topography that provides almost pastoral views in three directions.The plan and section of the house is, among other things, an effort to emphasize the segregated character of the place. Turning its back on what is urban, while the rooms are given selective and exclusive views out towards the trees and what for a town is an unexpected, almost pastoral landscape. This "tailoring work", of managing the different views from the interior, has resulted in very different windows, with different detailing, for each room. The vault covering the living room and kitchen is a structural hybrid, both a barrel vault (spanning between sidewalls) and a shell (spanning from gable to gable). The shell requires a large amount of tensional reinforcement on the two sides of the vault (where the walls or beams would be positioned when constructing a barrel vault). By structurally regard what would otherwise be considered a steel beam as tensional reinforcement, the amount of material needed to span the room, and especially of steel, diminishes dramatically, thus opening up possibilities regarding openings in the sidewalls. Part of the house was dramatically altered, on the request of the client, when construction was about half complete. This alteration, and also some irreversible mistakes on the part of the contractor requiring architectural "repair", introduced a level of complexity in the house that was not at all the initial intention. The detailing and furniture of the house are for a large part used to manage the faults and alterations during the construction. In this complex situation it has been important to reduce the number of elements, in an effort to retain some control over the composition. The handles on the furniture, for instance, are made as subtractions to avoid yet another element. This restriction necessitated about twenty different variants of handles, but no new element. Work on the house, though it is a new building, has sometimes given the impression of organizing a rehabilitation or reconstruction.
