The most essential item for our clients was acquiring the feeling of maximum security. That influenced an outlook and performance of a building. Its solid is a rectangular prism in which parts of the walls are movable.

As an effect when the house opens for the garden, eastern and western side walls move towards an exterior fence, creating a pre-entering area. After passing the gate one cannot enter the house or the garden any other way but through the main door, waiting in that safety zone, for its opening.

The innovation of this consists in an interference of the movable walls into the urban structure of the property. As a result when the house is closed (at night for example) the safety zone is limited to the house outline.

During the day as a result of opening of the walls it is expanded of the garden surrounding the house.

Accomplishment of this idea required the use of technically complex solutions. The most significant are the sliding walls (both 2,2 m high, 22 and 15 m long), which allow to interfere with the urban structure and determine the safe zone of the plot.

They are not the only mobile elements of the building. Apart from these, there are large shutters  2,8 m high, with a width ranging up to 3,5 m, opening up to 180 degrees.

The southern elevation is closed by an enormous roll-down gate of 14 and 6 m manufactured by a company normally supplying shipyards and air companies. It is made with white anodized aluminum which makes it possible to function as a movie projection screen.

An additional element is a basculed fragment of the wall, falling down to 90 degrees. It  leads to the roof terrace of the pool pavilion, from which a beautifull view opens for the surrounding space.
