The villa's building type evolved from a simple rectangular volume, with a rotated pitched roof. Subsequently, segments were cut from this volume in order to create windows, terraces, balconies and entrances. A cut-out corner facing the street in front of the house clearly indicates the main entrance. On the eastern side of the villa, a secluded garden and a second entrance can be found. A porch and a 15 meter wide panoramic window face the garden at the back of the house, and double up as a transition between the villa and the garden.
Both gardens in front and at the back of the house are linked to each other by a sloping path. This descending path extends itself to underneath the cantilevering villa, thereby providing garden access for the basement floor. The brief required a modern villa, a garden with a high degree of privacy and the possibility of sheltered parking. By designing a cantilevered villa, positioned closely to the street, all three of these demands were addressed.
