Gardens permeate the volumetry and generous wood and glass windows connect the interiors to the landscape. Varieties of perspectives are revealed while walking through the house. The rooms have different heights that confirm a spatial hierarchy. Extensive walls define fluid spaces and openings positioned in all directions integrate the living areas. Large windows frames are mostly positioned in East-West direction. This orientation allows a dramatic natural light effect during sunshine or sunset, and opens views across the house.
