The structure incorporates motifs from the vernacular architecture of this part of the Jura. A simple rectangular volume covered by a pitched roof is set perpendicular to the contours of the terrain and the prevailing wind. Exploiting the site's topography and history, the basement is built into the hollow of a small disused quarry. This buried level houses utility rooms and garages accessed via a gentle ramp from the road to the north. The living spaces are arranged at garden level, with a broad outlook over the landscape to the south and east, where they are extended by a large terrace. The bedrooms and bathroom are on the upper level, where the view can be enjoyed from a covered balcony or through a stripe of glass. A recess in the northwest façade’s corner marks out the entrance and shelters the stairway up to it. The concrete masonry of the basement serves as a foundation for the timber construction of the upper two levels, which are clad in a rainscreen of horizontal boards of natural Larchwood.
