This transparency allows a special lighting during all day, which reflects on the concrete underfloor decking. The gross materiality remains a will of the architect, which harmonizes the house with its close environment.

On the covered terrace, a large circular direct lighting offers a comfortable and changing light shaft which enlightens the kitchen also during the winter period. Through his 0.82 House, the architect affirms lightness associated with gross materiality, linearity with circular forms and subtlety through its integration into the surrounding nature.
