The walls relate the house with the terrain characterized by the presence of rock and soil of volcanic origin. These comprise the ‘settling’ of the house: support that provides protection but also determines the extraordinary views in its openings.

A suitable temperature comfort is achieved, taking advantage of the heat buildup in the walls and keeping it with laminated glass and sufficient insulation in walls and roof to deal with the icy winds of the area.
