Text provided by the architects:
The building is placed perpendicular to the nearby river, dramatically crossing one side of the river valley.
The parental part of the house is situated on the top-floor orientated towards the wide southern view, while the children’s area on the lower floor faces the river underneath the trees towards the north. This double orientation is the basis for the dynamism of the project, and the design is in all dimensions focused on enhancing this theme. The color reflects the temperament of the client.
