The residence is very impressive, both by its size and the architecture. It’s an imposing residence that seems to have been forced inside the hill. Building it on that particular site wasn’t easy but it was worth the trouble when the finished result looks like this. The residence is very spacious and glamorous. The entrance hall is actually a very high space that also includes the stairway.

The residence is a combination of concrete, wood and glass and everything about was meant to be impressive. Still, it’s not that eye-catching. It’s elegant and glamorous, but in a simple way. The furniture is mostly minimalist. The ceiling has exposed wooden beams in the living area and this tends to compensate for the cold concrete structure.

It’s a combination of modern and rustic, of cold and cozy. Of course, by far the most impressive part of the house is the large outdoor terrace that offers panoramic views. The location is not that accessible but considering the fact that the owners wanted a private retreat, I would say they got what they wanted.{found on homedsgn}
