The house volume has been conceived as an enclosure opened on each side to connect the interior with the surrounding context and to offer a view on the garden.
The interior walls spread radially from the center, supporting the big roof and creating a big open space in the center of the house. The slope of the roof and the deformed enclosure create different perspectives.
