House U

Built in the 1920s, this rather traditional residential building has been given an extension establishing elegant new areas. Parts of the former fa├žade have been removed in order to give the existing structure new access into the garden. Due to changes in floor level and materiality, as well as the creation of a “light gap”, the transition from old to new remains clearly visible.
