Two rectangular volumes are perched on a sloping site overlooking a verdant landscape. The lower volume contains the living areas, which are enclosed by wood louvered screens and open onto a terrace and a pool. On the second floor are located three bedrooms.

Inspiration from architect:

The house appears as a prism which seems to float in the middle of the abrupt landscape geography. In order to achieve this, it was conceived to take advantage of the slope and the most of the spaces were placed in direct contact with the surface, reason why the largest part of the building is a single story construction.
