Hiroshi Senju portraits decorate the walls. And furniture pieces have been designed by Cecotti Collezioni which is why they are so impressive.
Stools sofas coffee tables and even rugs and carpets complement the entire tone of the residence. The choice of the lamps and pendants are also significant since they have key roles in imparting the earthy flavor to the building.

The interiors are divided between public and private spaces with the high ceiling and open space constructing an inviting platform for a lifestyle in perfect balance with the alpine landscape. An immense rock wall serves as a divider separating the East from the West and also functions as a temperature stabilizer. The use of wood gives you a warm touch visually and a beauty all on its own. The folded roof gives the building a modern look that also blends into the stately mountainous terrain.
