One enters the property immediately via one of the three outdoor areas. From here you can enter the renovated existing building via a few steps or take a look into the central and permeable dining area – the heart of the building. From here you have a view of the south terrace as well as the garden in front of the vineyards – it is the central space and a link to different parts of the garden – it feels a bit like being in the middle of the green.
The dining room does not only connect the outdoor areas, it is the connecting link for all the interior areas as well: to the west the living room, to the north-east the two-storey children’s tower with 4 children’s rooms and in the south the existing building with the
kitchen on the ground floor and the parents’ bedroom on the upper floor.
The gardens are not large empty voids. By sitting between the volumes and being connected by the dining area, they originate with the best of both worlds: they form a combined large entity and at the same time are small, easily graspable and visible sections, each with its own character. We think that a lot of colorful things are richer than little of the same. The garden is substantial – because open space is essential!
