A house depicts the home of its owner and therefore reflects his being. The concept for the addition of storeys is based on this principle. In this case, the owner has a professional background as mountain rescuer and lives in close touch with nature, which is why the overall concept follows this theme.
The roof follows the shape of a peak, with its curved slopes and divisions, for example. Moreover the unitised construction of the roof represents the flow of water.
The new part of the building is perfectly embedded into its surrounding nature as the roof is greened as well as the use of form is sloped, making the house visually narrow.
In addition to that the exterior facade is made out of slates in different sizes in order to fit the natural surrounding.
INTERIOR DESIGN : The irregularities of the roof is mirrored by the varying ceiling heights in the interior of the house, which shape every room with individuality.
The interior construction is separated into clear parts with an easy route guidance, which also guided by the symbol of the peak.
The furniture is simple and modern, using wood material.
