The empty centre is converted into the main area of the house: a tense area, made up geometrically in its upper part by means of the high opaque bodies of the various pavilions.
A Picasso painting was painted in this coastal town on the Mediterranean Sea, and which is currently in the Picasso Museum in Paris.
Inspiration from architects:
The play on volume decomposition reminds us of the Picasso cubist composition. The clear-dark and the intense daylight in this area of the Mediterranean balance the topographical plenitude of this area of the Delta.
