Set in a valley on top of a rock, this house, previously in ruins, opens completely to the outside, establishing a spatial continuity between the countryside and the house. The option for using wood, from the ceiling, to the interior walls, doors and frames aims to contrast with the cold of the existing stone walls. The concrete floor and the manual tile portray the typical and vernacular identity of the pre-existing house.
