​A narrow ​stretch of land composed by tree orchards and a vineyard determined the layout of the house.
Long and narrow, the house thrives from the relations between these spaces, flowing along the topography.
Cladding the exterior in cork bark blends the elevation with surrounding nature and keeps control of this large estate.
Good olive oil is extracted from the land, as well as sprouting thermal water was re-used as geothermal source.
