A house is a vivid, flexible organisation in which change and growth take place, just as life changes your needs and ideas. In this house, a simple demand - more room, storage and light - had a simple solution. In a narrow layout with limited daylight an under-used patio, is transformed into two spaces surrounding by glass and skylights. Artificial light supports the basic plan and spatial quality. The long corridor is the result of placement of the stairs at the rear of the house. In it is a 9-meter long storage-closet with doors integrated with mirrors and light.
