The premise of the design in this project is the topography, the size and the uncommon geometry of the site itself. Located in the countryside at a rather high part of a steep hill the building has adapted itself to the topography. Considering the limited size of the land the building has maximised its surface in two stories following the existing topography. The lower story with a panoramic view to the landscape serves the living and the kitchen area whereas the upper rectangular prism contains the private zone as well as a good size balcony facing the panoramic view. Due to sustainability issues the upper prism is designed rather solid. At the same time it provides a considerable amount of areas in shadow for the lower glass cube.
