The building is split into two identical but mirrored halves, belonging to two separate units organized vertically across three levels.

A massive wall positioned centrally in the interior provides for lateral stability of the entire timber structure, with the terrace platform resting on two massive girders cantilevering up to four meters.

Inspiration from architects:

Its form is defined by the roof which provides a shield from the neighbors and frames far reaching view across the slopes of the hilly landscape.

The design intent was to create a house without external walls in reference to traditional mountain home typology of the region whereby the dominant portion of the building’s envelope belongs to the roof rather than the walls.
