Inspiration from architect:

This heterogeneous spatial composition, seen within the context of organization of the new house and a plethora of possibilities of its use, creates unexpected places of strong impressions and different experiences.

Such a heterogeneous and spatially diverse program resulted in a house which assembles, blends, and compresses three different ambiances.
