The clients had a very clear vision of how they wanted to live in their future home. They dreamed of a compact volume, preferably with a rectangular ground plan. Their wish list also included a central fireplace, a hub around which family life is centred. This was the brief the architects at JUMA went to work on, with particular enthusiasm for the idea of positioning the fire at the centre of the house. Not in the least because this principle was often applied in the past by JUMA’s great example and source of inspiration, architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
