Individual dwellings

On the mountain and in the midst of a forest, this house appears a large square pavilion contoured by analogous façades. Topped with a metal covering, it contrasts with an entire wooden interior that perfectly curves into cocoons like well-ordered rooms. The residence atmosphere elevates a wandering sensation of an inside promenade connecting rooms to their own balcony and leading to the exterior’s inspiring contemplation of the snowy magical winter sceneries.
