Can we twist a family house without demolition, hydraulic devices or magic? Yes, we can! We don't know why the socialist builders have situated the house on the plot reversely, but they did it. The main entrance and the vertical communication were situated towards the west, living rooms towards the main road. By positioning the new main entrance to the street side of the house, we could attach the staircase to the living areas and perforate its volume with new openings connecting it with the beautiful garden.
