The project aims to demonstrate the attitude of a mediterranean composition to fit in an alpine landscape. The composition is based on the hut archetypal shape and some subtractions organize different types of space: the entrance, a porch, a terrace.
The inner space of the ground floor, organized in two different levels, follows the topography of the site. At the first floor, the span-roof offers a complete different spatiality.
