The PS house project faces a small valley area and is oriented in the north – Northwest direction. The neighboring sites are cultivated fields and a small urban cluster. The house spreads across three different floor plates. The features of the project are developed across these floors facing the North direction. The design walks along the unevenness of the land and the hierarchy of the planning is done in a spatial progression, that is : functional area, social area and private area.
