House on the Cliff

“The design of a small house is also an opportunity to test an old myth of modernity: to let architecture speak with few and obstinate words, without fear of any loss of meaning, being meaning itself. An exercise of openness and understanding of that submerged world that offers architects the opportunity to compose signs from a collective heritage, and to do so according to linguistic codes aware of the actual impossibility of total silence and complete neutrality.”
