In order to create more space for the owners and to give the old building from the 1960s a new direction, the old gabled roof is replaced by a single-pitch roof, which opens up the entire building towards the view across the valley. The extension provides it with a clear orientation, complete with a front and a back. This change creates a relationship with nature and injects the old building structure with new vigour. The two-storey front extension not only unites the interior with the exterior, it also links the living space across the floors.
