The country house lies on the outer edge of a residential area on a site and declining southward. The surrounding is characterized by extensive agricultural land with low-density housing and consistently offers views into the wide landscape. The new building is set along a side street, on a long subtle slope; lining up with existing single built houses but standing freely, slightly rotated in plan. Its inclined roof, approximately parallel to the ground, relates the building in relation to the site’s topography. (text by E2A Architects)
