Window openings allow you to look inside from one zone to the another. The living room is a large, open space, where the irregular window theme appears, exposing the natural exterior. The most interesting part of the room is a mezzanine with library, based on the large steel beams. Huge glazing connects the kitchen and the dining area with the garden and the surrounding forest.
