Realization of a modern house on a high point, allowing to enjoy an almost 360° view. These exceptional conditions, however, required special protection against extreme climatic conditions:
The architectural answer was found in a central patio. The hexagonal house consists of 2 closed modules protecting the back and sides of the house. The large roof above the central patio, as well as the terrace facing the sea view, provides direct protection while maintaining excellent natural ventilation and perspectives on a very warm common area.
