The presence of deciduous trees and the exposure to winds and sounds, caused by the presence of a road led to the use of two attics that protects the House and helps to define 2 patios that preserve the views to the South and to the West.

The House was designed in such a way as to conceal with the natural development of the vegetation around it.


In the kitchen, there is a vertical element which turns into a strong Southern light and works as a periscope in order to see the ocean on a mirrored surface overcoming the visual barrier imposed by the road.
