Simple and see through, the basic atmosphere and feeling is determined by the environment and the panorama. Despite generous ground floor spaces and cantilevers we kept avoiding placing pillars and walls, so we used a system of huge beams on the roof, to hang up the load of the slabs. This beam is hidden in the thick layer of ground of the green roof.

The main area of the ground floor is all integrated into one space that can be divided by gesture controlled sliding doors. Closed functions and loadbearing elements are two strong islands, that also help separating and organising the flow of functions. All zones facing the view, joined to a big terrace that also has a flip-over infinite swimming pool. The glass wall can be entirely slide away, so the interior comes just part of the exterior, windy smells and noises of nature.
