No roof units shelter a vacation condition, an open air life in a place nearby the sea, while a setting of screenings and projections allows working, collaborating, socializing and enjoying through the Internet...
As its most fundamental principle the space, excavated from the bedrock of the site, seeks punches of daylight from wherever possible at ground level. Underground, the simple sculptural treatment of stone, plaster and water are given definition by a subtle mixture of natural and artificial light...

Without interfering with these, and taking advantage of the dense surrounding arboreal set, a path on a high route has been drawn from an ancient animals’ trail, which was determinant for the setting of new structures...
The building is transformational with the kinetic movement of steel plates that open to form window shutters and doors. By the use of different hydraulic actuators simple moves of the steel plates in the façade change the building from something completely closed to become something quite open...
