Given the shape of the site, the architects decided to take advantage of it rather than to try to change it. As a result, they opted for an underground garage built into the slope. They used natural stone as an exterior finish material and this allows the house to create a seamless connection between the slopes above and below it. The interior of the house is very beautiful as well. The internal structure is well defined and organized. The residence features a central area around which the rest of the rooms are organized.
