The guesthouse is divided in to two apartments
(see floor plan right) and
the rooftop studio with its glass roof. Each apartment of 84m²
(900ft²) living area has two
double bedrooms, private bathrooms, separate toilets and a large
open plan living room with kitchenette and fireplace. Visitors to
the guesthouse say they sleep well surrounded by the natural
materials that make up the interior and structure of the building
where there is nothing cold, sharp or hard.
The building is load bearing, that's where the roof rests on the big bales
(240cm x 120cm x 70cm) without a timber frame structure to support
it. The roof has a 45 degree slope to shed the large winter snow
loads, protected by larch shingles (see below left) above its big bale insulation
(see above left).
Under the glass roof top is a studio space with access via an
external covered stairway.
