Between the trees, a dozen of monoliths have raised. Above them, two massive horizontal blocks divided the space. One roof came above the other and in a timeless decision they remained slightly misaligned.

That is the shell of the House.

The higher volume naturally became the Living-room, the lower one, the bedrooms. From their misalignment, appeared a path, the necessary transition from one to the other. Contrasting with the strong materiality of the shell, the interior mainly plays with timber. In a continuous space, the warm atmosphere offers transparency and perspective towards the peaceful garden.
