The exposed concrete on the ground floor unites the spaces, from the access, opening up to the house and giving continuity to the gardens that surround the residence.

The upper floor has a micro-perforated metal sheet with precise openings that frame the landscape, creating a smooth contrast between what is handcrafted and technological, overlapping tonalities and textures.

The roof holds a studio that opens towards the garden, overlooking the treetops. The presence of an opening on the upper floor creates a double-height in the entrance, through which you can see the entrance and the square in front.
