The dwellings are organized in three east-west oriented housing chains that accentuate the existing slope of the landscape and simultaneously, in a natural terracing, take advantage of the existing views and solar orientation of the site.
The dwellings, each two storey high, have bright, lime-washed masonry facades. Together with the standing seam zinc roofs they help to create a warm overall expression defined by the contrast between the masonry surface and the smooth, clear zinc roofs.
The three housing chains are situated so that the valley is left untouched and preserved as a green and grassy area with various rare plants.
