The house rises four levels adapting over the slope of the land where it is located to have the best view of the landscape and the city.

The top floors hold a loft meant for a couple where a double height space covered by a concrete slab, that extends to the exterior, connects every area: bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen, giving them a privileged view and access to the terrace.

The lower levels work as the base of the house; the interior repeats the idea of the upper levels allowing a studio, gameroom and the children’s bedrooms to meet in a double height space that faces the garden and has access to the lower terrace and the back street.
