To fit perfectly into this verdure, the building is fragmented, plays with its volumes. The environment is reflected in the shimmering facade enliven by the varying colors through the seasons.
The dis-articulated levels result in large outdoor spaces. The apartments enjoy an uncommon relation to nature, surrounded by the trees and opened on a panorama offered by the lake and the Alps.

On each floor lies a large apartment, designed according to the desires and needs of buyers. A way of planning housing tinted with freedom.
