The structure is composed of wooden beams arranged parallel to the longest part of the house, transforming the roof into a set of coffered ceilings which explain well the rotation of the modules and provide a sense of spaciousness.
Although when seen from the exterior the summerhouse may seem dim and small, the effect when inside is quite the opposite – of spaciousness and brightness. The objective was to create timelessness and comfort. Nearly all the furniture has been specially designed for this project.
