Inspiration from architect:

The volumes organized themselves by vertical and horizontal sections. One programme built by one atelier facing to the street, garages and service areas working with a hinge and finally the House related with the garden. One of underground storey corresponds to the foundations, another ground storey in granite, corresponding to the public and social areas, and even the top story.
