HOUSE IN BELAS (1995)
The small garden surrounding the house is extended through a system of roof terraces, overlooking the valley. One of the terraces, situated at first floor level, is protected from the prevailing northern winds. The other, on the upper level, has a pergola and a solarium.
Indoors, a curtain of wooden elements accompanying the staircase, connects living rooms, bedrooms and roof terraces. The living rooms are arranged around the staircase and open onto the garden. The bedrooms, away from each other, face different landscapes.
