Wallpaper house

© gettyimages - Reference image: overlapping circles


We chose 5 rocks on the ground and from them, through circles with the center of the rock itself, we designed the house. Thus, each facade is oriented towards a rock, correlated very strong gesture in the spirit of the place.
Other factors of relationship and integration with the landscape, are the green cover and the materiality of the entire volume (wooden stakes and granite abroad, both from the place).
By opening interior panels, the user can configure the interior of the house in one continuous space.
