A young family becoming a double career family with adolescents. An inaccessible housing market, and a well-functioning neighbourhood network. All reasons to reinvest in the modernisation of this standard terrace house from the 1980s. The briefings main criteria: 'the sensation of living in new dwelling'. Subgoals that have been met: improved comfort with less energy; aesthetics; sound-isolation for drums practice; more privacy and efficient logistics. And the daily surprise, lasting to this day, of unusual patches of light, visions, new uses.
