The building is clad in brown brickwork with pointing in the same colour, but most of the facades are made out of glass, providing spectacular views over the surroundings, which in time will be completely ‘green’. The brickwork walls have a fixed height, while the walls continue as garden walls onto the boundery of the lot. This gives the front facade a much-closed expression and a private feeling to the house, while the rest of the house is extremely transparent, so “outdoor space becomes indoor space” and vice versa. The roofs, sloping outward and upward from the patio, seem to be floating on the glass.
