Positioned in front of the dining and living area, a roofed terrace encircles the building and links the interior and the exterior space through room-high glazing. The overhanging parts of the upper roof shelter the balcony and give a shade to the broad expanses of glazing, protecting the house from excessive solar grain in the summertime. In the winter, the sunshine becomes a passive source of energy. The back of the house appears to be more closed.

The entire façade of the building is clad with natural white pine wood taken from the local region. Thanks to this wooden façade, which has already weathered to a light gray colour, the building fits in harmoniously with the surrounding area. The house was designed according to strict considerations of sustainability, involving the ecological quality of the materials and choices such as a solar hot-water-system, geo–thermal heating and a stove in the living area.
