Text description provided by the architects. The idea of the house comes from the concept of “catching” the landscape. So, a container frame emerges from the pool and wraps the house. This framework, due to the topography of the mountain where it is located and to create more privacy, becomes a very dynamic and continuous element, wich takes different forms as it adapts to the circumstances. Emerges from the pool, as a triangle for privacy, and reaches the deck and descends on the opposite side of the pool. The trajectory that draws, is reinforced by the linear use of artificial lighting.

The impression of the lack of limits between the exterior and interior of the house is mainly due to the massive glass windows and the height of the ceilings. There is a smooth and fluent connection between the internal rooms encouraged by continuity of the materials between rooms.
