The main idea of the project was to maintain the connection between the forest and the house, so the owners could enjoy the local landscape.

The stilt structure concept was adopted to avoid ground impacts and by making the house elevated, like a treehouse.

Divided in two blocks with different levels and roofing: one has two bedrooms and a cement roof tile over wooden beams and plywood ceiling; the other has a living room with a porch that gives a 360º view of the surrounding area.

The colors remind old farm houses and differs from the raw concrete blocks and the burnt cement floor.
