A single-storey house with a basement is being built on a 30,000 square meter plot in the untouched nature. Permitted square footage, 400 square meters of ground floor and 1,000 square meters of basement, made us design a house with multiple scenarios. The house can become a luxury villa, a boutique hotel or a family farm with multiple uses. As the views to the ground floor are unprotected, we decided to break down the visible ground floor into a number of smaller cubes and so make the house seem smaller. Light and air penetrate the basement through three completely sunk atriums. Olives, immortelle and lavender are being planted in an irregular organic pattern on the plot and they embrace the outdoor facilities so the inhabitants have the opportunity to melt with the nature completely.
