The volume is made of apertures of various dimensions which have been selected to fit in with the surrounding views, providing the living space with a large vertical picture over the lake and the mountains.

All the walls have been made of bronze-tinted sandy concrete, each wall segment is ramping and this feature strengthens the project dynamics, these walls shape the house as if it were a long carved rock rising from the garden on the hill.
