An extruded cover in the longitudinal direction of the ground with a “T” shape is the framework in which space is inhabited. This geometry let us feel the sea, protecting from prying eyes, having the sense of living without neighbors. It helps control the southern sun during summer and lets it pass in winter.

The walkable roof becomes a sort of belvedere enjoying the entire surface of the plot. An exempt cabinet houses the structure, distributes spaces and filters privacy, opening up possibilities in the way of movement and use of space.
