From the architect. The project is organized according to a new helical path which, through the extension of an existing deck and the overhang of the new room, allows the user to go up to two new panoramic terraces on the house.

The skin on the project is designed as an autonomous unit, through modulated square openings with measures based on a 30 cms. module and a skin with a changing rhythm.

New areas of the house blend into the existing through the ventilated timber skin. Whose function is to avoid accumulations of water and moisture in the structure wall.
