The originator of this project was a family of six: the parents, two children and a set of twins. Terraced houses pose a real challenge for accommodating large families due to special limitations on the versatility of each space.
The decision to put the entrance in the kitchen to save space in the dining room provided an opportunity to tear up the script for traditional terraced houses. It unlocks the potential of the plinth and creates a “cave” with a side entrance, making the kitchen brighter and more intimate at the same time.
On the upper floors, where the space for a room for each member of the family is rather limited, the staircase is the central, decorative element that bridges the siblings' rooms and floods the heart of the home with light.
