Text description provided by the architects. A single-storey house, an outdoor swimming pool, a small outbuilding and the surrounding wall running westwards and southwards made from a diverse range of stone combine to form a harmonious whole.

A large, well-established group of trees creates the first impression, with the surrounding wall leading visitors to the entrance on the eastern site. By means of its east/west alignment the house is positioned over the basement of the previous structure.
