The building is located at the periphery of the villa­ge and ascribed to the landscape of a sloping field. The new road curves below the parcel which necessitates a steep berm where a small incision is made to allow access to the garage and provide entry to the house through the basement.

Night View

The gabled rood is oriented perpendicular to the slope following local custom. The building volume is rotated to face the street and to optimize the stunning views. The resulting crystalline geomtry emphasizes a dynamic relationship to the landscape. This reading is enhanced by the absence of roof eaves. The sheathing, composed of verticle wooden planks, is treated with a weatherproof dark stain which relates to the materialtiy of the aged barns in the region.

Exterior View

The standing-seam copper roof will age in a short time to the same hue as the facade. The interiors are primarily composed out of concrete and spruce. The surfaces interlock and graduate in propor­tion from the cellar to the attic from heavy to light. In the living room a rugged concrete floor matches the con­crete walls and in the bedrooms the wood floors are made from the same material as the timber walls and ceilings.
