The climatic conditions and situation of the land, which had views of 360 degrees, resulting in the idea of ​​giving a plant cross at the four cardinal points long views. It emphasize the cross with two stone walls that they turn around and generate the envelope of the wooden buildings which are attached, generating major corridors throughout the house with lighting in the stone walls .

We decided to use a construction in cedar wood walls, floors and ceilings in the private area of the house as in the playground and dining as well as achieving a cozy cottage feeling, attending the climatic situation of the place. In the central area of the cross is the entrance hall; in this area we made a change using limestone pavement in order to emphasize the idea of the plant cross distinguishing between the different areas of the house.
