Text description provided by the architects. A building at the ground floor 5 meters wide and 20 long with generous walls of lava stone stands on a shaped core of lava, residue of buildings massive '70s; only two openings diagonal, north-east towards the gardens of the district, south-west to a glimpse of the city.

A prism wooden "hut " is placed on the lava fragment of the house, rotated 6 degrees and cut on the volume below, carved by two terraces on the diagonal gashes: a gem set between the heroic rears of tall buildings.
