Design and Construction
The house was design following a visual tour. When you arrive, the only thing you see is the stunning lagoon.
Entering though a roof terrace, a narrow stone Walls’s courtyard is revealed, as a threshold.
Once you are inside it, the contrast is brutal; the whole house faces the lagoon, making the limit between the interior and the exterior very tenuous.
The kitchen, social area and both rooms change levels depending on terrain, creating cozy spaces with the natural landscape as a background.
The house is made with three basic materials that respond to the existing landscape and the vernacular materials: Stone from the surrounding mountains; Steel for the structure; and wood (Pine and Teca) for the floors and the ceilings, which are found in the area.
