We were approached by a client about a renovation of a 13-year-old family house. The client bought the house for herself and her son. Unfortunately, the purchased house and garden were incongruous in shape and layout. Both showed all the attributes of their time, self-construction in 2006. Literally, there was chaos inside the house. The outdoor space was in a similar vein of confusion and discomfort. At the beginning of our work, we were actually considering the demolition of the building. However, within the financial balance sheet it turned out that such a solution would not be the right way for our client. In the next step, we determined the costs which could be invested within the project, so that the renovation would still make economic sense.

TECHNOLOGY. An electric convection heater is superseded by a thermal air pump.
MASS and outdoor shapes of the house -the whole building is unified into one shade - white. The white coat covers everything, including the roof, facade and wall dado.
INTERIOR. We unify and spatially simplify the disposition of the house. We break down dysfunctional nooks, sloping corners of division walls, imitations of arched lintels, and improve communications inside the house with several wall breakthroughs. All surfaces in the living areas are unified using wooden floors. We use an epoxy self-levelling compound on the surfaces of both the entry foyer and bathrooms. The walls and ceilings are painted white.
