The House Below the Trees is located in the 100 years old garden of the villa. The plat is dominated by huge leaf trees. The garden might be unkempt, however, the dominant trees fit well in the garden. They have had enough space during the years so they are massive and the treetops are widely arched. The atmosphere under the blanket of branches is so different compared to the urbanized surrounding. The tree crowns offer pleasant shadow and privacy.
There is an artificially made terrain platform in the garden that raises one meter above the surrounding terrain. It may be served as a tennis court or as a place for a greenhouse, who knows. These days the platform supports the new building.
We are designing the house that is utilizing our favourite spatial idea - the space immersed into the ground. The main living space and the bedrooms are slightly sunk into the ground. That allows enough privacy to the residents, creates a nice environment during hot summer days and reveals unexpected views to the ambient greenery.
