Zoning plans based on the analysis of the urban area imposed a roof geometry and limited the maximum height of the building. The rectangular shape of the plot and its orientation influenced the location of the building. Investors wanted the house to be open to the south garden and to be spacious and comfortable. To meet these requirements and to split the volume, we divided the building into different parts. We turned the first shape toward the south and included in it the whole day zone. To let residents maneuver their cars easier, we faced the second shape toward the entry to the plot. Here, we placed the rest of the functional areas. In addition, we shifted both structures to further enlarge the driveway. This procedure also allowed us to create a shaded and hidden bedroom terrace.
