The longitudinal layout on the ground in the East-West axis, uses solar incidence throughout the day, and incorporates the green surroundings into the indoor, expanding the feeling of spatiality.  Also the house’s longitudinal location in the land incorporates the river.

The challenge of this project is exploring  the uses of indoor-outdoor space and public- private space, dependent  of multiple possible uses, because as a weekend  home it will accommodate different human groups: families, friends, partners, etc. as well as different uses of time, one afternoon, a weekend, a holiday, or permanent living. Each one of these surfaces: eaves, patio, deck, dock, gallery etc. embodies the potential of turning into  a more private environment.
