Two large, branch-shaped houses occupy the two partial perimeters in such a way that a superordinate, legible and coherent urban figure is created, which generates different spaces. The grown open space, its topography, as well as the strong greenery and the space-forming presence of the phenomenal trees form the starting point for a delicate, fragmented typology that expands and contracts between the tree tops. A polygonal spatial system, which alternates between chambers and open niches, allows multi-sided references to the treetops, the cardinal points and the landscape for each apartment.
