The project is located on a compact 80m2 site, enclosed on three sides. There was no need for many rooms, but a desire to create generous spaces and to as much as possible maximise the spatial experience on such a small site. Both the library and the kitchen look onto a compact and dense green garden. The double height living room has an open connection to the master bedroom and a tall bookcase that is visible from the street. Only a few big windows were punctured in the fa├žade adding an element of animation to an otherwise introvert building.
