In this project the open exterior spaces are as significant as the interiors. The architects accomplished this by eliminating any suggestive distance between outside and inside. The result became a series of voids and volumetric projects that capture and define the landscape. Continuous views towards the X, Y and Z axis’s were created and the main spaces are organized between transparent layers extended by voids or semi-covered balconies.
