User's Profile : -
As a half-buried house in its relation to the main access it appears diminished; on the other hand, from the river, it appears as a glass frame dissimulated on the vegetation.
This weightless intervention is enhanced by the overhanging part that shoots off the riverbank cliff maximizing its transparent appearance from the river reducing land occupancy and preserving all trees.
The concrete plasticity in relation with the luxuriant flora was determinant, therefore the careful concrete cast drawing.
