The creation of a unique and iconic house according to the customer order was a challenge for the architects, as the location is also in a fairly homogenous suburb. An interesting fact is that the original idea for the staircase as a sculptural element in dark polished concrete formed from the James Bond movie “Never Say Never Again” came. The concrete house is “L-shaped” to maximize the solar aspect for the living spaces. The light is reflected on the polished stone floors.
