The interior and exterior merge thanks to the permeability that is achieved through large glazed surfaces, with window-doors that connect the interior space with a large gallery, pool, the garden, and the view.

The upper floor is lifted from the ground at the observer level, acting like a suspended, linear and solid volume, imposing from wherever you look at it.
