Looking more like the structure was planted and growing from the surface, rather than built there, The Hof House by Studio Granda is the perfect example of architecture respecting the surroundings. The unit seems to blend perfectly with the landscape and the correct choice in materials makes all this possible.
The green roof creates a “mirage” effect against the mountains, almost like an invisible cloak of sorts. The interior is blessed with a very creative floor design and nice contrast of the concrete against the wood beams on the ceiling.
