Hundertwasser comment about the work:
This is a house for one family only, so totally integrated into nature that it is practically invisible, particularly useful for farmers or in landscape reserves. The glass front faces the sun; the roof, which blends into nature, points to the cold north. One can walk through the landscape without realising that one is walking on roofs. Such a house is very bright and sunny, more so than a normal house, because it has large windows towards the sun and cupolas which let in the light from above, and the ventilation is excellent, and such a house, after insulation, is drier than a normal house. It is more healthful because the grass plot protects the house against all evil. There is nothing more beautiful than to go for a walk over one's own house. (from: Hundertwasser Architecture, Cologne, 1997, p. 98)
