Text description provided by the architects. The house is situated close to the sea with a great view in this direction. While it folds out towards the horizon, it is also broken up to relate to the scale of existing buildings close by.

The building is also partly hidden under ground in order to allow for unobstructed sea views for neighbors on the back side.
