The house stands out in a land with a gradient in the middle of the forest full of native trees standing towards the lake from a certain height, establishing a relation with the trees that determine it.

The house hast got a first wood volume with a front side extended towards the lake in a terrace incorporating the trees, where there is a long table standing from the grounds acting as the terrace-patio of the house.

The terrace continues towards the lake in a fall, building a second volume where the idea was to build a protected outside space  that allows you to remain in the forest without losing the view to the lake, the forest up to the sky through the tree branches which determines its height.

Floor Plans

To be able to watch from and through the house, with stained glass windows, pillars that are mixed up with the trees, a house without a front and without corners.

The house has only been built with 4 x 8” pieces of wood, both pillars and a system with horizontal  beams, and also the ceiling with a double beam system  in each pillar, stairs and each one of the house  furniture have been  fixed to the soil structure.
