From the architect. Adaptation is key into abstraction mimetic. The green totally invaded the facade, and the house disappears: as a large magnifying glass focusing on a piece of grass.

Internally an impluvium (water, light and oxygen) defines the organization, around which living gravitates. As in Alice's house, it becomes a hole where golf balls slip.
