Entrance to the atrium.
"The client wanted a new outside-entrance; which would save some space inside, give an impression of journeying into the house, and be a rain/snow protection at the same time. There was also a need for a small outside-terrace with an outdoor-kitchen-unit, and a narrow porch in the south."

"Every house in the neighborhood has a small porch (veranda) facing south with a roof overhang of 80cm. Since this area is quite narrow and at the mercy of weather conditions, we decided to extend the overhang to double its existing standard size.
