The concept parameters for the design of this house are the existing structures in the surroundings are, the topography, the far-reaching views of the landscape, building restrictions and the future growth of the family. Situated along the slope it shares a dialoge with the scenery. Outside terraces in each level are possible through the embedding of the building into the slope. The astonishing views from each room in the house over the valley and into the mountains allow the user a rural living in a modern transformation of traditional elements of this area. The side of the house facing the hill is closed, while the front opens out to the countryside, allowing natural light to flood the space.
