Text description provided by the architects. Located on the edge of a ravine, the house isolates itself from the neighbors and opens to the landscape of the glen. While its thermal and acoustic qualities contribute to its habitability, it is its density and texture that build the tour experience that connects the threshold with the landscape.

The plot with its trapezoidal proportion, narrow at the front and wide at the back complicated the access, which is resolved laterally, however the final setup allows the link between all common spaces and bedrooms to the natural protected area.

Handmade blocks made on site are the central material exploration of the house. These blocks are carried to the limit to configure different lighting atmospheres, tactile signals and acoustic ceilings, given the ease of its handling.
