The new structure initial volume is split in 2 units that are slightly shifted in height and length, both units are floating on a base above the ground evoking lightness beside offering better views from their cantilevering terraces to the impressive surrounding landscape.
Each unit contains a kitchen/living room as well as a bathroom and bedroom with big openable skylights to allow natural light and ventilation.

The volume opens towards east with a big glass facade that fades with curvilinear lines into the black aluminum shell. Mirrored glass on the west facade borders the garden of the client with the units and catches the surrounding panorama with pool while making the units almost invisible.
