The site is on the edge of the village, at the end of a north-westward rising service road. The surrounding buildings illustrate the typical rural everyday architecture.
The owner asks for an intimate, contemplative building as retreat from public life. As such, clear and reduced shapes reflecting the surroundings (rural buildings) are prefered over an illustrious architecture.
The building resides compactly and asserted on a slope. The rough-cut wooden facade in its simplicity emphasizes the shape’s clarity and blends beautifully with the surrounding landscape. Differentiated views invite to enjoy various spaces throughout the building.
Level leaps partition the rooms together with the staircase furniture, the bulding’s centerpiece.
