It was however abundant by just simple operation, not a vertical louver and was an important theme with the design to say whether you make an expression with the depth last.

The whole façade is made from seamless sliding panes. Few and refined materials, such as wood, stone and glass reaffirm the project’s essentiality. At sunset this steel-framed former farmhouse becomes completely permeable to the view: a large light box reflected on the swimming pool water.
