The house is situated on the first line from the lake surrounded by a belt of pine wood. There is a public rest zone between the house and the pine wood, a kind of a countryside “quay” where villagers like to stroll.

So that the walking people’s glances would not disturb the owners’ privacy a very simple but elegant solution was made – to raise the ground floor 1.2 meters above the ground. In this way the view toward the lake and the pinewood is ensured and at the same time privacy is secured.
