The house was built around the existing trees so as to not disrupt the natural landscape.

Tapered Lueders limestone cladding was used to create a weaving effect on the facade of the house, and its appearance changes throughout the day as the sun creates continuously shifting shadow patterns.

The stairs have been designed in a unique scissor-like stair, that stitches the first and second floors together from both sides of the house.
