The site area has a long, steep garden, a grown orchard with apple trees, plums, cherries and a wide open view of the city in a valley, giving the place a unique and classy character.

Located in the lower part of the land is part of the orchard. While still reasonably accessible from the adjacent road, it is not in the shadow of large neighboring house.

Three mutually vertically shifted parts of the house mimic the steep terrain. Persons inside the house perceive the surrounding garden visually and physically. House is gently absorbed by the orchard with used as construction material, naturally linking between the house, garden and orchard given the situation.
