From the architect. The building provides a strong relationship with its natural surroundings. To minimise its visual impact, the building is raised up from the ground. The glass, its predominant material, brings its inside and outside closer together.

Both the ceiling and the inside floor paving white colour intends to visually frame the landscape. The support bathroom stands as a unique element to destabilise the whole proposal serenity, with the red of its inside fittings as a counterpoint to the whole building white colour.
