Words from the architect

The house rises on the mountainside and is surrounded by a forest. Six skipping floors are planned alongside the slope. Each floor is designed to be homogenous with the rest of the structure. Only the position of the windows modifies the space. The atmosphere in the house changes as you move from floor to floor, the experience being unique every time -- owing to a changing surrounding environment.
