The concept of Casa G is based on reading and feedback to the landscape it exists on.  The characteristic landscape situation and view differences distinctively in each direction. Towards south the view to the sea and islands, towards north the characteristic triangular mountain, towards east the glacier and towards west the river and canyon.

Those elements are the creator of the project, the transitions between the landscape views giving the entrance from the north and the curved plan giving a vitalized focus towards the seaside in south.  When turning back the north view towards the mountain is as well enhanced with the widening view due to the fan-shape of the tilting wooden wall, being a mediator between the northern and southern landscape characteristic.

Interior View

The tilting is an answer and an interpretation of  the glacier towards east, they are communicating and the only and huge window in that wall is creating “a painting”  of the glacier experienced from the interior.

Interior View

The guest-wing of the building stretches to the canyon and the river towards west.  Thus the building concept is a composition and dialogue of views and experiences of the various nature at site.
