The project is designed with the logic of the hollowed trunk. From the inside, the space concentrates the west and east views. The exterior coated in rusty metal dialogues with the cultural landscape of vineyards … while the inside is coated in natural wood.


The basement is built with local river stones, their colors dialogue with the mineral and arid natural landscape. On top of the basement, the house arranges the diurnal areas, placing the viewer in a dominant position, framing views of the landscape.

The research focuses on the relation between the project and the landscape where it sits. A process that goes from the dominant landscape and the constructed element in contact with the natural soil, to get shelter and perceive the dominant views.
