This abstract shape house stands out from the neighborhood, as a vase-like expression cladding in white fiber cement panels.

Inspiration from architect:

The house has a modest and abstract formal character in a neighbourhood with various density and architectural expressions. Regulated minimal distance to adjacent road is maintained by the shifting geometrical shape of the house. The shift also obtains a significant view for a neighbour up the hill.
