The house is organized around a semi internal patio that houses a linear swimming pool. All rooms open completely to the view. The glass façades explore the lightness of the steel structure. In modules of 8 meters, the structure defines a cantilever of 9 meters over the main room. The relation with the ground reinforces the variation of topography in order to reduce the visibility of the built volume, while establishing an impression of lightness by the elevation of the main level of the house.
