A concrete wall meanders the land to Southeast creating the limit that the house and garden will occupy. To Northeast a second concrete wall, this one very straight and sharp, protects the house and the garden from the north wind and provides privacy. On top of these walls comes, also in raw concrete, a slab on the continuity of the existing slope that, covered with native species of fauna, leverage the relationship between the house and the existing land.
