An extraordinary and quiet landscape, a community breathing shapes and vivid colors which, were there far before, man. A landscape showing a possible path toward a harmonious coexistence. Along this line tradition and future meet as a house built on the side of a mountain. Two signs, the house and the mountains, semantically near, two signs, two archetypes highly evocative. The organization of the building, in its workspaces and its social spaces, makes the structure. Vertical pathways together with an orthogonal horizontal distribution eliminate any possibility of wasting space, making each link/connection more effective. At the heart of the project, the idea of a building that may be at the same time a place to work and a place for the community. This call for simplicity is strongly expressed by the choices made in terms of how to shape the volumes and by the adopted techniques.
