From the architect. This house above the Rur reservoir is reminiscent of the famous architectural icons along the Californian Pacific Coast – despite its modest size. The glass façade continues around the corner and opens the living, dining, and kitchen areas up to the panoramic views.

Bedrooms, dressing area, and bathroom are located in the more private areas at the rear of the building. Sharp-edged greywacke, glass, exposed concrete, anodized aluminum, galvanized steel, washed floor screed, smooth walls and hand-finished cherry wood are elegantly combined to create a reduced artifact in nature that timelessly adapts the well-known elements of the Modern style.
