Text by the Architects
The two-story volume with a pitched roof opening south stands well embedded in the slope of Rönsberg. The above-placed living area, barrier freely accessible from the north, is extended on two sides with generous terraces, which can be completely closed with room-high sliding panels. The bedrooms positioned south towards the slope let themselves shaded or extended as garden play areas in the same way. The larch shingle façade, due to its homogeneous aging, makes the building gradually disappear in the mountain landscape as years pass by.
