Text description provided by the architects. The project site is characterized by a steep slope with a constant inclination except the central area where there is a flat surface of arrangement.The view is truly amazing, from  anywhere of the lot we can appreciate the green hills sloping down to the sea and blend with the blue horizon. For this reason we have chosen to develop the new project in order to "consume" less ground as possible.

The main volume is to be suspended, a bridge structure who download its weight on the ground only through limited portions of volumes craft accessories services. The rigorous development of the building creates a kind of telescope that allows, from the garden, to frame the panorama to the sea. A system of masonry surfaces closes the building from the street helping to create a protected courtyard in which the house bridge is the upper frame that delimits the landscape towards the sea.

The materials emphasize the signs that the project has drawn on the site: the local stone covers the walls of the external arrangements, the finishing of the concrete strengthens the "weight" of the volume bound to the ground, the pure white is used in the suspended volume. On the ground, when the works will be completed, will prevail the green, almost unchanged from the original site.
