The land is quite rugged, with elevation differences reaching up to 16m. It is crucial to maintain the natural characteristics of the terrain and capitalize on the views to the west by opening the house in that direction.
The intervention adapts to the natural constraints, embedding the building into the land and concealing the volumetrics of the construction. The visual impact of the volume is minimized, and the house is covered with a garden, blending it with the natural surroundings.
