Exploring the possibilities of alternative, recycled low cost materials, this house presents a continuous interior space, designed for the use of one person. Its complex geometry derives from the limits of the site, the sloping topography and the desire to keep some trees that could reinforce the interaction and continuity with nature. Its roof ramped terraces define a continuation of the ground, recovering the open air space and the extensive views of the Jambreiro Forest.
