An introverted linear house of 6 meters wide by 20 meters long that closes towards the street, and opens completely towards the landscape through a cantilevered terrace throughout the house. Taking advantage of the natural elements of the site, stone walls were made to confine the project and welcome from the street. The main entrance is a solid wooden door 2 meters wide by 3 meters high, which opens directly on the spatial void generated by the pine.
