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.

We added sliding horizontal shades to control climate and lighting conditions of this area. Thus making it a protected, useful space."
