The selection of materials follows the original concept for the house: a warm and cosy home where its inhabitants would feel sheltered. The enclosing walls are thick stonemasonry walls that protect the interior. The wide glass panes are protected by wooden slats that can be adjusted or slide into the walls. By this means, the sun exposure and the views from outside can be modified. The canopy that frames the entrance and protects the veranda is made of white exposed concrete. This massive, texturized and sheltering skin encloses the internal spaces, where the white colour and the polished materials are the main features. The garden can be contemplated from a neutral canvas made of lacquered surfaces, smoked glasses and a pavement of trowelled concrete.
