Projecting two terraces, a covered outdoor corridor facing the rooms and a corridor that skirts the entire housing allowing to circulate outside the house. The terrace that has access from the hall is protected on three sides by the same house, surrounding it to protect it from strong winds in the area.  A more exposed second terrace makes as a solarium and a more recreational area on  the lake,  balconing with a better view.  The exterior corridor gives every room a protected space itself as a balcony.
