The house rests on the rocks of a small promontory and is a buttress volume that contains a dock on the lake for sheltering boats and a two-storey house above it. A functional solution already present on the lake but here given an original stylistic interpretation. The material used, exposed local stone, and the simplicity of the decorative elements evoke the features of local spontaneous architecture.
