This strength, generated by the geometry of the volume and through the stone material that surrounds it, softens with use of native vegetation located on the plot according to the activity carried out in different areas.

The volume looks emphatically towards the sea and becomes more  human on the wooden terrace and herb garden nestled between the rocks of the natural terrain in the south.
