Inspiration from architect:
The walls of the rooms consist of two sets of parallel beams, with horizontal window bands in between. The first floor has glass walls to the east, south and west. To the north, the existing rock face is incorporated into the room. Thin timber columns completes the structure. The columns are hinged at their meeting with the ground, allowing for adjustments according to the specifics of the topography at each point.
