Four facades, curve towards the inside to create four distinct petal-like wings. These curving recesses are visually connected to each other and cross at the heart of the building.

An open staircase at the center of the house connects the front and back wings, the more intimate sleeping areas are located towards the back.

Inspiration from architects:

The design of the house responds to both its setting and to the seasons. The elevated position of the open plan living areas enhances the views to the exterior. The vertical organization of the building follows a centrifugal split-level principle.
