The main intention was to modify and reconstruct an existing family house with two-dwelling units into a single unit - villa - house in order to respond to new functional , compositional and aesthetical requirements of the client.

Proposition principles:

1. Creation of a major entrance part by connecting the existing house staircases.
2. Central staircase with lift design
3. Relative interconnection of the residential areas and creation of atypical interiors to dissolve through whole building
4. Adapt the exteriors to the designed interior
5. Complete main principles with essential technical solutions, details and suitable materials

From the existing house preserved only the supporting construction which has been also adjusted in few places.
