The building’s geometry mediates between the neighboring structures. A white, L-shaped volume – containing the bedrooms on the upper floor – hovers over the U-shaped living area on the ground floor. The basement is extensively inscribed into the slope and contains the guest- and the Wellness/SPA-area.
