[en] The home is often a simple box that is simply and naturally inhabited. This is an act that involves two seemingly contradictory but indispensable hypostases: to be inside, to be outside or rather, to be neither outside nor inside. In the house, however, there are thresholds that mark the passage from one space to another, there are passages that facilitate or limit the access, features like different materials, light that falls differently, shadows, details. All these features give quality and particularity to the place.
The living-room located on the ground floor, runs linearly from the access, open and bright. Each space of the house is marked by the materiality of the ceiling. The spaces are open to each other, remaining uncompartmented. In a succession of the interior route, with the access being the strating point, there is the kitchen, the dining place, the library that covers the stairs, the living room and at the very end of the route there is the office.
The kitchen is a warm and calm space, relying on the texture of the wood. The dining area is perhaps the most open space, the table being visually present from the access. In the living area the dominant texture is that of the apparent concrete.
The interior design is completed at the ground floor with two sitting areas that are placed in the thikness of the wall. These two spaces coverd in wood urge you both to look at the green space from outside, or they can also be used to relax, to dream, or as a reading area.
The furniture is designed to complete the space, to become a form of closure and compartmentalization. It is an element of construction, rather than being an object placed in the house.
The central point of the house – the staircase, becomes a pivot of the space, a place where all the passages intersect and which visually opens the interior. It is the brightest place of the whole design. The white steps seem to float supported perimeter on the shelves of the library that surrounds it. The space of the stairwell is transformed into a large lantern for the house, both throughout the day, with natural light, or at night, with the help of artificial lighting.
Upstairs are the bedrooms. In contrast to the opened ground floor spaces, the bedrooms are individual, closed and protected spaces.
Towards the basement, the staircase leads to a hobby space, hidden, buried like a cellar.
The house is designed as a set of places that let you choose and gives you the freedom to retire and have time alone with yourself, or vice versa, to be with the whole family.

[ro] Locuinta este de cele mai multe ori o simpla cutie care se lasa locuita simplu si firesc, act care insa implica doua ipostaze aparent contradictorii dar indispensabile:a fi inauntru, a fi in afara sau mai bine spus, a fi nici afara, nici inauntru. In locuinta exista insa praguri, semne care marcheaza trecerea dintr-un spatiu in altul, exista treceri care faciliteaza sau limiteaza accesul exista particularitati- materialitati diferite, lumina care cade diferit, umbre, detalii care dau calitate si particularitate locului.
Spatiul de zi aflat la parter se desfasoara liniar dinspre acces, deschis si luminos. Fiecare spatiu al casei este marcat prin materialitatea tavanului, ramanand in acelasi timp necompartimentat, deschis unul spre celalalt.
Intr-o succesiune a traseului interior dinspre acces se afla bucataria, locul de luat masa, biblioteca care imbraca scara, livingul iar in celalalt capat se afla biroul.
Bucataria este un spatiu cald si calm, mizand pe textura lemnului. Locul de luat masa este poate cel mai deschis spatiu, masa fiind prezenta vizual inca de la acces. In zona livingului textura dominanta este cea a betonului aparent.
Mobilierul este astfel conceput incat sa completeze spatiul, sa devina element de inchidere si compartimentare, mai degraba element al constructiei decat obiect.
Punctul central al casei – scara, devine un pivot al spatiului, un loc in care toate trecerile se intersecteaza si care deschide vizual interiorul.
Este cel mai luminos loc al intregii amenajari, iar treptele albe par ca plutesc sprijinite perimetral pe rafturile bibliotecii ce o inconjoara. Atat pe tot parcursul zilei cat si seara, lumina soarelui respectiv cea artificiala, transforma spatiul scarii intr-un mare lampion.
La etaj se afla amplasate dormitoarele, spatii comode, individuale, inchise si protejate, in contrast cu deschiderea spatiului parterului.
Spre demisol, scara conduce spre un spatiu de hobby, acuns, ingropat asemenea pivnitei.
Amenajarea este completata de doua locuri de stat, plasate in grosimea zidului, imbracate in lemn si care te indeamna atat sa privesti spatiul verde al curtii cat si sa lenevesti linistit, citind o carte sau visand.
Casa este conceputa ca un ansamblu de locuri care te lasa sa alegi si iti ofera libertatea de a te retrage sau dimpotriva, de a fi impreuna cu intrega familie.
