The project was developed in cooperation with Dr. Alexander Pedevilla.

The goal was to conceive a freestanding building among the landscape that allows for precise views and perspectives. The 2-floor wooden structure and personal residence is fronted on the north side with a one-floor structure coated with fibrated cement, which houses the entrance area and side rooms.The main structure is largely glassed on the south side. The building’s interior is clearly structured and additionally differentiated with a level jump.

The lighting in the side rooms comes from slats and skylights. Wood is constructively used for the low-energy home concept and as a façade element in combination with glass and fibrated cement panels.
The building was designed with premade wood elements (installation time approx. 1 week) as a low-energy home with innovative technology (geothermal heating, controlled living space ventilation).
