Text description provided by the architects. The project is an extension of a single family home located next to the Valmayor reservoir with a small pavilion and terrace oriented towards the water.

The integration of the new building with the existing comes as a result of the sloping roofs, while the laminated wood structural frames distinguish it as different. This 'light' construction seeks to make a transition between the original house and the surrounding landscape.

The project is hardly visible from the entry walkway, except for the gables that project slightly, finally becoming apparent from the interior of the parcel.

The structure consists of prefabricated laminate wood frames. They were assembled on site and painted white to blend with the exisiting house. The assembly at each joint employs a steel plate sandwiching the web of each frame and bolted from the exterior.
