The street facade has the least windows, protecting the inhabitants from the noise and gives them peace. In addition, various kinds of fences give them the sense of security. That’s where the house got the name from: the Fence House.

Window openings allow you to look inside from one zone to the another. The living room is a large, open space, where the irregular window theme appears, exposing the natural exterior. The most interesting part of the room is a mezzanine with library, based on the large steel beams. Huge glazing connects the kitchen and the dining area with the garden and the surrounding forest.
