This particular site was selected by a man, who looks forward to any kind of challenges and who as a client fully relied on our expertiese. Despite out affirmation, he still believed he will have a house without compromises and went and bought the site. This man later client ,owner of the construction company became devoted builder. He was well aware of our work, we previously cooperated on some of our previous built projects. From the usual triangle client-builder-architect became a wonderful client-architect dialog.

The client initially expressed a desire to own a house with all rooms on a single floor, after he bought the site he resigned from that idea, however we managed to design the house in such way after all. All rooms, living room, dining room and kitchen, three bedrooms, office, utility room, bathroom with a sauna and separate toilet. All directly accessible from the main road even for physically challenged person.

Cantilivering roof overhang protects large glazed window areas from overheating in summer, while this arrangement allows sunshine to enter the interior and contribute to reduce heating loads in winter. Everybedroom has a direct access to the terrace overlooking the garden, the town and mountain slopes.

Tree crowns and terrace compensate for an indirect access to the garden resembling a sever ski slope in winter. The best viewing points can be found on this ski slope and you have to climb down or ski downhill to enjoy them.
