The building assembly is placed in a vill of Enneberg at a height of 1,200 meters and it refers to the building tradition of the “viles”.
The local couple court type includes the two staggered buildings with their deliberate insertion into the hillside.
Elements such as saddle roof, loggia and wood façade and regional design details unfold in a minimal, roomy, light-kissed interior.
The use of some special materials from the surroundings (dolomite rock for the exposed concrete, solid swiss stone pine and larch) corresponds as well to the earlier style and the concept of sustainability.
A balanced composition is obtained between warm swiss stone pine wood and soft felt fabrics along with white exposed concrete in the interiors.
The energy based structure wears the print of an environmentalist. The own water source, the geothermal energy, the passive application of solar energy and a PV plant provide the house with the necessary energy sources and make the building energetically self-sufficient.
