The house is conceived as a soil extrusion rather than an object in landscape.  Framing views is not a priority, but the creation of a microcosm that allows understanding its unique features by revealing its hidden qualities.

The house breaks up in different volumes that create platforms for life. Four platforms are created: one for cars and services, two sheltering the bedrooms and offering open planted surfaces above, and one dedicated to social activities, covered by a series of concrete vaults that anchor the space underneath to the ground.  By cantilevering the one of them, they seem an unfinished structure, so as the landscape appear to our eyes.
