The material as it is, architecture in nature, artificial in the natural.

The project does not intend to impose or blend itself, it marks an abstract architecture, honest, with unfinished materiality of concrete made rock.

It is involved in the landscape, respecting it, trying to be matter like the site.

The project is designed in two parts articulated in the landscape, the inn hanging from the rock and emerging toward the cliff, crouching, low on the ground, and the other volume, for camping, which receives the visitor from the arrival by car.
