The alignment of movement is central to the function of the house. The staircase goes up all three floors – It stands at the center right between the two sides of the house with no support, as a statue-like steel element that separates the lobby and the living room.

The frontal façade facing the street is partially tiled with Granite. The front door acts as an integral part of the façade and tiled with the same material. The diagonal element is coated with Cedar wood throughout its interior. This element starts with a vertical wall, continues with the upper beam, through the side and into the living room area, where it acts as a bench facing the garden.
