It is a completely permeable construction, but with its own very marked identity, because the deck slab defies gravity by means of the imposing cantilever which, because it has no supports, is directly linked to the pool, being only a roof that 'floats' to generate shade in the rest of the program: an open kitchen with barbecue and a traditional oven, a large arbour, and the toilet area and dressing rooms to service the pool.

The hidden perimeter lighting still further highlights the slab's lightness, while the lagging provides a modern look that fits seamlessly with the main house.
