The exposed concrete ceiling, oak and silkscreen plates for the internals, as well as screed and concrete on the ground constitute with the outside facade a restrained elegance.
Inspiration from architect:
The design idea was to reflect again the structure of the forest in the choice of the material of facade and roof.
The facade was covered with wavy-grained fir wood, symbolizing the tree trunks of the surrounding forest landscape, the intensive green roof the pine green.
