“A timeless and modern building, which emits generosity and reacts in a flexible way to the requirements of the inhabitants” , were the guidelines for the design. The building is not a designed object for its own purposes. It is an object for usage, and so the material has the ability to show the process of usage. A characteristic part of the house is the connection of the inner and outer space by the facade and the lines going through it. The facade was made by the owners metal- company.”
