Next to a rocky slope, after a dense pine forest, is a tower-shaped house. Is not round, but its geometric shape expands to the east and west to accommodate inside the low light and warmth of the sun at dawn and dusk.
A double wall, made of lightweight concrete pours progressive, building on the perimeter of an ellipse, supporting, at the top, a sloping covering extended. In the emptiness between the two walls, an extensive interstitial spaces containing servers (stairs to the bedroom, toilet, boiler room, pantry, toilet) vivideros serve the main spaces of the house and help stabilize the large room temperature central.
Inside, the implementation starting composition, is reinterpreted through an orthogonal system, turned on the ground regarding the major axes of the ellipse coordinates some stereometric volumes, including the room for guests on the ground floor and the night zone outdoors on the first floor.
On all around, deep holes in the outer wall, and escaped suggest unexpected directions towards the rocks and the woods outside descomponenendo heaven in multiple quadrants. In the course of days, nights and seasons, the thick windows soffits recorded the changing colors of the sky. Thus, the light from the sky makes a mutant architecture, noting the time it runs. The light color space, and change with it. In tracking changes, the matter remains in its original essence: colorless or gray trend.
