Inspiration from architect:

The first idea: a white volume that rests on a continuous grass carpet.
The second idea: the house has 6 façades.

When in a highest stage we are descending the existing path, we see a volume that comes down and accompanies us, suddenly this volume leans up and projects itself to the valley.
