An impressive field at the edge of a precipice. The main views directed towards the valley, yet with an environment rich in vegetation and topography. The Y-Shaped house stands like a tripod, to privilege views to the valley but also wants to ensure to cover, radially, the whole environment. A series of enclosed spaces and courtyards succede each other and are distinguished by their use, closely linked to sun exposure. In the center, a covered outdoors space, that bridges between patios and rooms: the most public area, with views right and left, qualified by architecture itself.
