The facades plays on the theme of the mimicry with the materials of the floors of the outdoor spaces: place of access in bitumen and grassy garden. The 3 facades road side and the roof are coated with plates of fibro-cement corrugated anthracites (eternit), the facade garden side is coated with artificial turf. The surface of outside spaces is extended so at the farthest and tends to remove the home in its stereotypic context of a neighborhood of houses, delaying so in doubt the icon of sacrosanct single-family home
