The integration of the outer surfaces requested by the client is a kind of artifice. At the entry level, which is accessible via a flight a steps, the structure narrows down to two supporting corner columns, which not only provides guests with the unique opportunity to look through the building while at the same time enjoying a panorama view of the surrounding landscape,the whole time protected from the elements, but also lends the entrance a sense of significance. Inside the column,a spiral staircase connects the living area on the upper level with the two more private areas on the lower level ,where the bedrooms and relaxation areas are interlocked like a puzzle.
