Surrounded by pine trees, which protect it from the wind and at the same time fill it with freshness and intimacy, this construction fulfills the owners’ wishes to live in a place full of harmony. At the top, the black-clad structure houses a den, master suite, guest bedroom and bathroom, with a separate biomass system to the west with a solar powered ceiling.
