On the living level the volumes focus ‘onthe relationship in form and material- between the salon and the raised ciningroom opened onto it. tis however not possible to descend into the saion from the dinngroom; the connection is made via the stairwell at the side. In this house the difference between the front and rear facadesis extreme, and the qualities of the situation are enhanced. The front facade is organized vertically, the rear horizontal- Ww. The bipartite division of the high front facade - in the actual building the top floor was dispensed with, against the architect's wishes - suggests two dwellings: the differ- ent materials clearly indicate the difference in levels between the front and the back, The symmetrical arrange- ment does not directly reveal the intemal organization; in short, the facade "tells the town a story” ‘The rear facade is linked directly with the interior; each floor of the main dwelling has its own terrace, causing the mass to taper towards the top. A diagonal tun in the articu- lation makes these terraces face an inner courtyard at the sido. ‘A studio was added to the terrace at a later date, again without the architect's consent. 2 original intended 87
