The entrance to the practice is clearly visible at the front. The entrance to the dwelling on the other hand, is discretely tucked away beneath the carport. The irregular pavilion roof rests on a pillar made of white lacquered steel fins, which is positioned centrally in the two storeyed house. Around it winds the staircase. The outer walls are finished off in wood, the framework in white lacquered wood. Three roof planes are covered by an extensive green roof. Via the fourth roof plane, rainwater pours down through a gargoyle, into the garden pond.

The house lives up to all the recent notions about passive energy and is built exclusively with sustainable materials.
