For the exterior walls, local stone is used to harmonize with the preexisting canvases, for the interior we use black block to divide interior spaces and confine the patio. Around the courtyard  it is a exterior corridor marked by the rhythm of the columns, which, in turn, serve as a support for the wooden frames that structure the roof. Concrete elements appear as grafts in the supporting walls as elements that limit, support and confine closings, windows and niches.

The gable deck marked by the outline of the radial wooden structure, generates a semi-gloom atmosphere to the interior of the cabin, also provides a generous spatiality to the interior and and give us a scale at its lowest point to go to the interior garden.
