In the village, houses are fairly close, so the entrance facade has virtually no windows – the main rooms are facing the interior of the site where the two wings of the building form a cozy courtyard.

The premises, are located along the southern facade for maximum direct sunlight.

Above a double height living room, there´s a roof garden. In this garden there is an exit connecting to the corridor on the second floor (bedrooms).

Below, on the first floor we find the public areas (living room, dining room, ancillary buildings), and on the second floor the master’s and children’s bedrooms, and an office.

Skylights on the roof bring natural daylight to the interiors.
