The clear and simple external play of geometrical volumes embracing one another seems to arise from the steep terrain.

Inspiration from architect:

The upper and principal volume projects itself towards the river and sits on a lower and embedded volume. The house is fully covered with a green roof that facilitates its integration into the landscape and acts as an insulating layer as well as helping reduce heat build-up in summer. The wooden claddings reinforce the contrast between the two volumes and favors harmony with nature.
