The architecture of the building corresponds to all modern trends and conveys not only the spirit of the time but also fulfils all the functional tasks assigned to it. In a happy irony of fate, a beautiful house stood in the place where a landslide destroyed the buildings a few years ago.
The extensive glazing attracts attention: part of the house’s front walls are like glass walls that let in maximum light, providing ideal insolation and filling the space with volume.
The entire interior – from the decoration to the furniture fronts – is made in laconic minimalism with the dominant white colour. The absence of bright shades and elements cluttering the space makes this interior perfect.
The spirally twisted main lines of the house seem to break out and hang over the slope of the beam. Lamps in the form of birds hovering over the standard room and the “Möbius strip” staircase emphasize the unity of the interior with the exterior.
