Some elements of the house are built in loco and assembled at the project site to create a shorter construction time. With controlled openings and efficient thermal performance, the opaque facade is also reduced maintenance costs and energy losses. This house building sits on the lowest part of the site in the middle of a beautiful Pine Tree Forest, surrounded by beautiful nature.
