This distinctive, three-storey house with an elegant, black painted timber façade and a wall mounted photovolatic installation is built on steep sloping terrain. The first floor features a glazed, east facing frontage which overlooks a valley and is surrounded by a Corten steel frame. This feature is repeated within the balcony on the southern side of the house and in the free-floating bathroom oriel, creating a striking effect. Light play from an outdoor pool which reflects into the house through a floor mounted window creates a wonderful atmosphere.

Distinctive, cutting-edge design


Oliver Engelhardt

"During the thorough design process working through multiple iterations, the house became increasingly stripped-down – from a more traditional form with a rendered façade to a streamlined black wooden cube. Highlights include Corten steel elements, the large glass frontage and the integrated photovoltaic system."
