Text description provided by the architects. In a very beautiful natural environment this single-family dwelling lies hidden. Taking advantage of the sloping terrain, it is integrated into the rest of the housing development, chameleon like, shown as a bird’s-eye view of the plant, only a stretch of the façade is visible. Thus a one-storey dwelling is considered, in which all the spaces turn towards the interior of the plot like a shop window. The dwelling shows two different characteristics, due to the demands of the community. The first one is defined in the area of the entrance; it was realized in brick, respecting the neighboring dwellings. Towards the interior of the piece of land, the dwelling becomes ethereal, made of glass, stainless steel and fine metallic screens.
