The house has been designed with inspiration drawn from the previous building that had grown organically to cover new needs and to adapt to the site specific qualities of the plot. The building is made up of two parallel and staggered volumes that contain living rooms, bedrooms and bath rooms respectively.

The living room with a ceiling height of 3.7 metres has an unhindered view of the sea and the tiny beach at the foot of the building, whereas the bedrooms are more sheltered.

The house sits on a tall base of site cast concrete, containing garage, basement, spa and a family room with sea view and access to a sunny recess close to the sea shore.

Sitting rooms and bedrooms are on the first floor, cantilevered from the base. This part of the building is clad with black painted wooden boards with some characteristic sliding panels that open towards the sea towards the east or the evening sun towards the west.
