It has a controlled scale, meant to be practical and easy to keep. With its steel structure, slim wide eves, wooden ceilings and charred wood facades and granite floor, constructed areas area as integrated as possible, as entrance hall, living and dinning rooms turn into varandas when its glass windows are widely open to the pool and garden.
