The building is situated nearby a mountain lake and is configured with two major volumes, taking advantage of the natural form of the site, which presents two major level drops intercalated with two approximately flat areas: one volume that houses the rooms and reception, and the second volume that contains living and dining spaces, the restaurant kitchen and and technical spaces, both volumes are thus articulated as to exploit at maximum the geometric configuration of the land, orientation and views the site has, considering the insertion in site and how the building creates a dialogue with the environment.

The first volume, which houses the rooms is located one level below the access on site, providing on the roof the necessary platform for parking. Thus arranged, the volume is in an underground position (considering the access level), leaving intact the natural image.

The building is maily finished using site-specific materials, related to functions, the accommodation is clad in wood while the living and dining zone is covered in stone at the exterior.

Using the site form and reducing at minimum the surfaces exposed to the exterior, the energy balance will be more efficient. The site remains virtually unoccupied and can be used to carry out specific activities in the natural environment. In order to use renewable resources in a larger extent, the building contains a series of water tanks along the the long buried side, that retrieves and stores rainwater captured on the grassy terrace and reuses it for domestic water.
