Half of the platform is taken up by the upper floor of the building; the other half remains an open outdoor terrace adjacent to the kitchen inside. Next to the kitchen is the living area, which, from its elevated position, offers a view of the water, as well as the upper halves of two large oak trees.

Inspiration from architect:

A main objective, therefore, was to regain the property and to create flat areas with good sun conditions for outdoor activities. We placed the building on the northern property border, leaving most of the unexploited property facing south. The biggest part of the building was dug into the slope, creating a large horizontal platform on ground level.
