The attempt to establish a deep relation with the lake and the surrounding nature is a prerequisite followed by this building, which brings together in one articulated volume  four separate dwellings, four pleasant  modules in front to the lake. The use of local materials (such as the stone) clearly favors this process deliberately and successfully pursued, with a one concession, that of color, which is a bright note and a detachment in adark enviroment. The balcony overlooking the lake, large window, the porch confirm  the needs established by a very specific context. Inside you get the impression of a sophisticated spontaneity, based on the exploitation of two focal points: the big-wall fireplace and the dining area lift-up.
