The exterior of the house is dominated by a canopy, which offers shade, views and creates a central space for the house. The large interior of the house is divided into smaller units. Bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms are organized into “boxes” inside the warehouse-like “storage” space. Between these units are spaces that offer beautiful views of the landscape surrounding the house.

Thanks to its thick walls, the house is well insulated and can withstand low temperatures in the winter. It is heated by a high-performance wood-chip heater connected to solar panels, which supply the house with hot water. Rainwater is collected into an underground water tank and provides grey water for the toilets and the garden.
