The color gradient of the house is laid out so it gets darker close towards the ground and blends with the adjacent treetops. The pixel-like façade [2] combines sustainable technologies with traditional cladding and conceals a light timber frame construction.

The internal structure allows for a flexible [3] organization of the rooms. The kitchen and dining areas open towards the terrace while the downstairs living spaces look to a small walled part of the garden. The nursery situated at the upper floor opens up views towards the front yard.
