residence schutterstraat

On a vacant location in the inner city of Delft, The Netherlands, a strip was reserved for family houses to be built from own design. The unity of the block was guaranteed by restrictions concerning aspects such as alignment, height of the facade, colour and material use for the most important facades. Compared to the other houses in the block, cepezed’s design is provocatively simple. The floor plan is divided into a street zone and a garden zone by means of a crossways positioned staircase. The zone on the street side contains the utilitarian spaces such as kitchen, bathroom and storeroom. The garden zone contains the more intimate spaces such as living room, study and bedrooms. A skylight is placed right above the staircase. By keeping the construction completely in own hands, the construction time could be reduced to only three months.
