Text description provided by the architects. The site has strong countryside characteristics, between growing fields and scattered constructions, connected by winding roads and paths which arise some delicate urban issues.

In the ground floor a straight stair connects with the 1st floor, illuminated by an extensive sky light that separates the master bedroom from the other bedrooms, common bathroom and the studio.
