The house is well-organized around two simple and readable volumes recorded in the slope. One day volume is placed on the high platform while at a night on stilts volume floats above the natural ground.

This place adapts to its natural topography providing a framing of the landscape and follows the sun’s path. In the north, the house is hosted protecting itself views and winds.

Both volumes are clad in wood framing a strip of concrete: the medley basin. A transverse concrete volume contains the vertical circulation and serves the two volumes. The high linear opens to the sight and the strip of concrete terrace / pool protected.
