The villa is located at the southernmost point of the resort area of Millstatt, directly on the shores of the lake, Millstätter See. This site previously held a building that was an addition to an existing hotel with a nearly identical outline, as building regulations stipulated its basic preservation. This outline determines the outer appearance of the four-storey villa on the small plot of land. The design is based on a spa villa. Running to the second storey is a footbridge that covers the boat docks, which are integrated into the building. The footbridge acts as the villa’s horizontal connection to the lake. The distinctively sloped tower, which cuts into the body of the building, holds the vertical development of the upper living levels.
