Motive: One summer evening, the idea took shape when it turned out that both client and architect were big fans of the residence featured in the movie “A single Man”, a house built in California by Lautner. That shared love brought about instant chemistry. The architect based his design on the principle of the viewfinder of a camera, a reference to the professional activity of one of the residents.


In each room there is only one window to look out, as if you were looking through the lens of your camera. Having only one view towards the outside world gives peace of mind. Specifically, the old bungalow was gutted, insulated and redecorated. In addition, there was an extension that includes the summer living. The summer living, with windows on all sides, provides a counterweight to the rigid way of looking in the other rooms.
