In self confident manner the white monolith rises from the site. The volumetric principle was emphasised by the exclusive usage of the white exterior rendering. The main focus lies therefore on the exteriors elementary colour, nuances and slight divergences were achieved by aggregates to the plaster. In detail the facades surface was moulded rather roughly. Since only with the presence of light and shadow, performing its everyday play on the surfaces, the building can unfold its visual dynamic.

The rising silhouette gives a slight impression of the upward striving space sequence on the inside. Square shaped windows are referring every now and then to significant spots in the alpine landscape. The vertical facade descends sheer homogenous into the deep and slightly slanting embrasures of the window openings. The internal space arrangement was displaced half level wise, reaching from the ground level, passing the private areas in the middle, up to the generous living room in the attic.

Reduction of building technology, reduction of materials, high material quality, simple details, natural lighting and prospects by over-scale windows but at the same time renounce shading, refining of regional craftsmanship and traditional working methods, implementing of regional characteristics life roof form, main door or wooden parlour, ecological efficiency by avoiding of balconies and simplicity in the buildings geometry, avoiding of chemical insulations and energy-efficient usage of bricks

Hardest part of the research phase was to generate a design that would fit into the minimal building site. Therefore we developed an option which allowed the design to evolve in hight, by considering all borders of the site. The form whichcame to be, is the exact negative proportion of all administrative restrictions. Hardest part of the construction phase was the high quality standard we set to work and material. The building turned out to be a masterpiece in craftamship.
