“In a verdant landscape and at an altitude of 250 meters, the dwelling as a seed on the ground; it grows by finding space among the other forces of the site, the trees, the rocks; looking for the best view, the sun, the good orientation. The entire synthesis is structured around a central pillar and turns towards south-east, aiming for the good orientation and the view of the horizon. Following the axes x, y, z the elements of the synthesis, from raw concrete, meet on the site creating spaces, boundaries and sights, in a logic of endless motion” the architect describes.
