The retaining wall to the rear that anchors the house to the hillside was extremely lovely. As well as expressing the effort of retaining the earth, it concentrated in one place the oven and the point of collection of the water that filters through it.

Earth, water, fire.

The entire intervention gravitates around it.

The rest is white, untainted, abstract. The preceding trilogy is joined by air.
