The north facade with the lake view is a long glass facade with sliding doors,. The south facade is closed except from the kitchen and livingroom which has a big glazed area, which gives a view through the house and catches the lake view at the arrival.

Inside skylights are placed sporadically, which gives space for sunbeams, the view of the sky and the treetops. They are placed almost horizontal on the roof, so they are not visible from the outside. The sunbeams give a kaleidoscopic light specific places in the house.
