A timber platform is raised so that the views over the city and the distant mountains can be enjoyed.
A longitudinal element orders the space and concentrates the kitchen, the bookshelves and the worksurface-table.
Two large timber cylinders contain the bathrooms and storage. They are strategically placed to shield the interior space from the entrance area.
Mobile screens run around circular rails offering privacy to the resting areas.
