When asked to design a new townhouse as a 'starters home' by AG Vespa, we decided to literally think of the house as a starting point: A simple house, as a first step to fulfil the principal demand in the most economic and rigid way. But together with the main house, anticipating on growth and rising budgets, we also designed a series of complementary add-ons.


Rather than giving way to a series of belgian-style 'ad hoc' extensions, we created a set of 'toppings': Seemingly independent architectural objects providing different spatial qualities and accessory functionality. Dispensable yet essential, just like the chocolate sprinkles on your frozen yoghurt.
