We consider the problem of minimizing the energy
$$ E(u):= \int\_\{\Omega\}|\nabla u(x)|^2 \, \{\rm d\}x + \int\_\{S\_u \cap \Omega\}\left
(1 + |[u](x)|\right) \, \{\rm d\}H^\{N - 1\}(x)$$
among all functions u ∈ SBV²(Ω) for which two level sets $\\{u = l_i\\}$
have prescribed Lebesgue measure $\alpha_i$. Subject to this volume constraint
the existence of minimizers for E(.) is proved and the asymptotic
behaviour of the solutions is investigated.
