The new construction is an evolution of terrain itself, a continuation of the farmed vineyard landscape of terraces and dry-stone walls. The house grows out silently among the vines, marking topography through the prolongation of an existing stone-wall. A continuation, a way to integrate and grow over the vineyard. The house is born out of the terrain, two parallel concrete walls having a conversation through different materials and distances. On the one side a traditional handcrafted stone wall, on the other side a dark-colored concrete wall. A duality between wall of shadow and wall continuity. For eight months every year the vineyards are green and the terraces disappear between the leaves, fading the view of the house.
