Text description provided by the architects. On a slope towards the mountain horizon, three houses for rent and a swimming pool are located complying with the requirements of the client. The implementation responds to the use of the slope, and consequently the views. The materiality arises to establish the houses as emerging "rocks", echoing the natural landscape of the mountains, woods and stone ... From this analogy emerges the brick as envelope material in contact with the earth, polishing the interior to be inhabited.
