Besides the rectangular solid, the part of the house ground floor is also turned to create more privacy from the roadside. There is also a “cut” space in the living room and roofed floors. The architect places a perpendicular shape in the SPA zone that also becomes the garden private part. Quadrant House has an open space but it also has good privacy.

The wish of the investors is different from the local plan. They wish is a simple house with a modern flat roof but the local plan comes with imposed sloping roofs. In order to solve these two different concepts, a gable roof is designed from the street side and a flat roof from the garden side. It also becomes a solution for spatial law and customer requirements.
