House am Hörmannweg stands on the edge of the historical village center forming line with the local building traditions. Trying to create form of the building which would blend with the landscape in the best possible way, Daniel Ellecosta decided to use high-quality regional materials: a combination of plaster surfaces with porphyry and dolomite aggregate and larch wood.
The same logic was applied in the interior as to allow the inhabitants „to experience the building in its entire length, width and height”. Here the plain surfaces out of clay and lime, along with sand aggregate in dolomite and porphyry, and polished concrete floor are completed with wooden elements made of local larch wood. Hence, the architect formed a high quality space, tailored to the local environment's context and needs of the client.
