The parts of the building have different altimetry, they follow the topography of the site. Large openings offer views and create a frame on the landscape. Most windows face south and provide a considerable heat input. cable flaps regulate the overheating effect.

The building blends harmoniously into the landscape, the ground floor is clear and concrete acts as base, the natural appearance of concrete creates a soft transition between land and building. Choosing a darker concrete for the floor allows to highlight volumes. Large openings in the home allow through-views and connect the two gardens.”
