Here is what the architects say:

There is a position to observe the village from afar. The intention was to focus on the scenery the site is amidst of. We designed a shape which extends naturally a stonewall of old times. The horizontal slits are carved into it. Surprisingly it becomes familiar with the scenery of the village.

Because of the horizontal slits surrounding the whole house there is scenery wherever you see. The 15 horizontal slits that overlap in succession at the up and down have a total length of 115m.
