The day zone is at the garden level, with a single open and free living room, oriented towards south and east, looking towards the valley. The inside is simple and functional.

Inspiration from architect:

the five housing units are positioned in such way to create a unique and articulated complex assessed on different levels in order to follow the natural topography of the land, while uniting the green area around them, as if they all have a common garden.
