Text description provided by the architects. Sometimes we dig up foundations only to cover them up again. A safe certainty to determine what can be shown in the pre-existings. 

This extension, a wooden finished container, side toped with big glass plans, answers to a simple program possible to become a private house.

It is an open space with the pavement equiped, ready to receive the adequate facilities (bath and kitchen modules) to become a single person house. 

We design a light metalic system which permits ample overhangs, freeing up the interior space from other structural elements or walls. The transmition of forces from the tube-box is supported on the powerfull existing stone wall.
