This is a unique design, but sadly does not in any way complement or in any way blend in with the surrounding area.
As a free standing home it would be an interesting project, in its present position it stands out without making a positive statement.
The possibilities to enhance the area with a more traditional design abound - sadly My vote is its a no-no!

Himmelb(l)au Architects complete Villa Soravia 

Villa Soravia - the summer house in the resort area of Millstatt, Austria has been completed. It 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.
