Starting Point
The house has an extraordinary, lengthwise shape, is closed on the sides, and rises above the slope as if it was floating.
It gives you a mere glimpse of the generousness inside – consisting of a single continuous room, with the exception of the three bedrooms.

Large glass banks put their stamp on all the rooms. Depending upon the weather, the light in the room changes – natural light comes from above, front and below.
Curtains run with curtain tracks Unotrac provide additional protection against prying eyes, wind, and cool evening temperatures.
