How can we create a maximum of living experience on a small plot? How can we create a garden as big as possible as well as a parking space for 2 cars? We stacked 2 volumes on top of each other with a cross shaped volume as result. In the lowest volume the entrance and bedrooms are located. The minimum footprint should allow the biggest garden possible and a parking space for 2 cars. In the top volume the living area is located, with the best view towards the garden and canal. The 2 overhangs of the top volume create 2 covered spaces. One is a carport for 2 cars at the streetside and the 2nd is a sheltered terrace towards the garden and the water. The roof of the lowest volume is the perfect place for an open roof terrace.
