A small house in a garden for a man and a existing olive tree

The brief for this project was for two rooms: one for the guest and the other for the tree of the small garden.

The house was to be a place open to the sky and to the garden.

Metallic tubes, painted white, create the visible transparency of both rooms. The first set points the room of the tree to the sky. The second folds to discover from the guest room the garden.
