The project is settled in the site with the aim to make legible how the programme works and what the relation is between the interior and exterior proposed spaces. The result is the overview of an architectural and landscape structure similar to a small village. These pieces have been laid in the spot as if they were drawn on the sand. Like a sketch on the land with a stick of wood, instead of using paper and pencil, the project has been designed from the pieces; making small grooves which explain the project: the position of each space, the places for working, the places for living and which are the paths and ways which organise this little village.
