Though Superform joined the two existing houses into a single timber-clad home, each individual house was renovated into a different style that reflects its specific purpose. One of the homes, which contain the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen, adopts a more traditional and introverted style. Built from timber and stone, the house is faced with shuttered windows for greater privacy from the outdoors. In contrast, the second home that houses the communal social spaces was built in an extroverted and open style.

Constructed from steel, glass, rheinzink metal cladding, wood and slate, the second home is a light-filled structure that is lifted from the ground like a wooden ship. From the living room, a large glass facade slides open to a patio that overlooks the pool and surrounding landscape. The undulating landscape and angular wooden terraces down below draw inspiration from the nearby riverine landscape.
