Sputnik project

The typical section of this 100-year old house formed the base for a fundamental renovation project: Through its location on a dyke, the street level entrance is elevated a full floor above the garden level on the other side of the house. In this project the two levels have been combined to form a new spatial and light mezzanine-void composition. The connection between the different programs has become more direct and the garden is integrated with the house as if it were an extra room.
