The house was horizontally sited into its site, a strong relationship and environmental concerns make the project keep the natural landscape and sloping topography, in a way that the house floats on the spot creating two different levels of occupations. A couple of steps leads to the entrance, from the house a stair connect the green outside area where the swimming pool and the barbecue are placed.
