The residence also features a few other regional characteristics such as the saddle roof, the loggia and a wooden façade, all of which Pedevilla Architekten reintroduced by applying a modern and pure minimal design approach. In that way they accomplished to build a connection between heritage, local context and modern living.

The house also demonstrates a strong regional material palette; most materials were locally sourced such as the dolomite rock that was used for the exposed concrete, solid Swiss pine and of course the distinctive alpine larch.
