The architects were asked to conceive an economic house for a young couple which provided for a living area, kitchen, two bedrooms and a studio, served by a common bathroom and the master bedroom, for the couple. The garage and storage space were to be located in the basement.

The site is distinguished by its agricultural surround, narrow and winding roads, small spots of construction, as well as the presence of great masses of trees.
