The building is conceived as three discrete forms - garage, house and swimming pool - emerging from the landscape, their respective heights being determined by their use. The relationship between the three elements is informal, slipping past each other, sliding towards the sea.

 

They are detailed in the same manner and use the same material, polished precast concrete. The surface tension across the facades is maintained by the flush detailing of the windows and the glass balustrades. The reflected landscape is visible in both materials glass and polished precast concrete.
