In methodological terms, the decision was made in favour of the holzius solid timber construction method, which goes entirely without the use of glue and nails. The inside is dominated by simple, linear shapes and natural materials.
Regarding the walls of the rooms, the designers made use of the positive properties of Swiss pine, which guarantees a good night’s rest through a reduced heart rate. And clay as a building material regulates the interior climate by optimising the humidity in each room.
