Built in support of a pre-existing dock, the house comprises two volumes arranged side by side and offset vertically and horizontally, distinguishing the day and night quarters. Its vocabulary draws both on rationalist architecture – flat roof, large windows connecting the interior with the landscape, the layout of the interiors – and coeval Scandinavian buildings seen in the use of brick and timber, overhanging eaves and terraces, and the furnishings.
