houses mkk & lck

 

Building for two neighbours initiates by definition an impact on a large scale. In this case it opens up the possibility to revisit and reconsider the typical housing extensions. Individuality and cohesion with the main volumes are combined with precise use of similar but slightly different window openings and gable roofs. The new volumes consciously seek to fully use the spatial potential of the old main buildings through large internal openness. As such the new volumes become an integral part of the existing entity rather than competing with it.
