The visitor center is developed with a simple geometrical language. with the of putting the view into a frame.
The client’s house, is designed by integrating into the topography and landscape, in order not to cut the view from the visitor center. The house can be opened to the landscape with its foldable windows on the front facade.The living room and infinity pool extending inside are separated by an inner garden which allows the natural light in and provides direct relation with nature.
