Text description provided by the architects. To build on the lake surrounded by mountains is always a challenge, cause whatever one builds and however beautiful it may be it still takes away that much from nature.

The strategy then is to build a glass house perched on the land and providing privacy for the inhabitants, at the same time to make sure the lake view gets highlighted from inside for the inhabitants

The structure is wood steel and glass, supported on 2 RCC columns, perched like a bird on land
