One of the main concepts of the design is the relationship with the forest, topography and richness of vegetation. The architectural elements that embody the house are carefully situated in order to preserve as many pre-existing trees as possible, creating a series of patios and gardens that merge the vegetation and surroundings with the living spaces inside the house. The volumes which encompass the house are facing the lake, connecting the forest, lake and garden, through a series of openings that alternate between framing inside and outside views.
