Moreover, this house’s main element is actually a rooftop pool and a solarium, which displayed as two longitudinal volumes at elevation 6 meters altitude.

The maximum height allowed by the law in this city region is 6 m, as such, this overhead pavilion can be simply described as an elevated water tank suitable to swim in.

The ground level is a lush garden, a kitchen is almost completely open to the patio, the only indoor space floating above the ground and underneath the pool.

Inspiration from architect:

This building and its program differs from the focus of traditional architectural projects in two ways: the metropolis becomes a possible place to stay and enjoy during the weekends and elements generally considered secondary in a big house become fundamental components.
