Overlooking the spectacular forests of Galicia, the house is architecturally sophisticated, yet blissfully simple.

Raised from the ground by pillars and a central block, the concept is inspired by the typical stone granary from the region (Hórreo). The house is "L”-shaped with two different wings (day and night area), opening up to the south-west.

On both sides of the central block, there are two large open spaces, covered by the building itself that serve as a space-shelter or to carpark.

The house is placed at road level, with the entrance connected to the road by a pedestrian walkway.

A 100-years-old wooden beam crowns the chimney next to the window bank which frames the landscape and serves as a reading corner.

The bedrooms are oriented to the scenery, with direct view over the forest.
