Vacation of an Architect

This is the vacation house
of architect Claus Bonderup,
in Jutland
sometime in the late 70s
it was designed like two eyes jutting out of the mountain 

maybe the architect imagined himself as a monster
hidden inside the mountain, peeking out to the view?
or maybe the house is not a self portrait
and these are not eyes.
surpisingly, one of the "eyes" is a conversation room.
(via another Taschen book that knows more than Google).
Mr Bonderup is of course famous for designing the Semi lamp, though the house is nowhere to be found

I was able to find some fantastic photos of the conversation room in this  blog
