Under a roof, four elementary volumes on a two levels house hosts the residence near the sea.

A primary organization with independent spaces that are connected by wooden paths. The central patio, mediating element between the inside and outside, is connecting the front with the back, the sea and the forest.

The roof, like a straw curtain, covers the volumes towards the beach and protects the house from the water, the light and the wind. A natural canopy that getting up in three points: eyes that are watching the sun set behind the island of Sakatia.
