From the architect. The transparency of the building the construction material used, establishes a pacific dialog with the surrounding natural environment without compromising the purpose of urban planning, in relation to the end of the road. The implantation of the building is done without damaging existing tree species.

The interior special organization took into account a more effective relation with the immediate surroundings, and predicted that the circulation would be made from the most public / noisy area to the calmer /study area. The interior volume that distributes the compartments releases the structural geometry of the building, emphasizing the idea of container and contained object.
