The composition and shape of the buildings has a mathematical origin. The structure reinterprets the tradition of the prefabricated chalet construction, which uses timber framing and a roof with trusses. While respecting the logic of this system, the buildings acquire a new character with the introduction of twisting the new buildings in relation to the old ones, and a one-metre roof overhang. The diagonal across the building determines the angle of the twisting, leaving the ridge orthogonally related to the existing building. From a symmetry, everything can be reduced to 3 truss structures and prefabrication can still be used. The traditional tiled roof will be replaced by a green roof structure, as a result of which rainwater gradually drains away and no drains are required.
