Inspiration from architect:

Promoting relationship between building and landscape, taking advantage of the place’s overlooking position over the city, castle and surroundings;

Encouraging a strong complementarity between the house and the garden in order to create an intense visual relation between the inside and the outside, between construction and natural elements;
