Image of the house is based on the contrast of light stone and dark wood facing. From the facade due to the stone wall, height of the first floor is looking exaggerated and second floor merges with the roof. Wood appears where people contact with the wall - on terraces and balconies. Therefore, the south facade is faced with wood and fully opens to the garden. Inner passage in the interior connects the entrance with the plot behind the house. North facade is the «stone» one, it has less windows that all the others.
