Windows and MAXI Lift-and-Slide Doors Frame the View

The exposed concrete building blends symbiotically into the panorama of the jagged rock face on the opposite side. The glass surfaces on the southern façade facing the village centre were used in moderation; partially shaded panoramic glazing and a window with a metal exterior clad mounted on the façade provide a flattering view that is framed and brings warmth to the interior. The generous lift-and-slide door elements open to atriums and lateral garden terraces with a view to the lake. Their execution in Huber-Fenster-MAXI underlines the rugged stone and wooded environment of the project. Ventilation sashes with integrated mosquito netting let in fresh air from the predominantly green surroundings. The front of the larch exterior door was designed specifically for the project.
