The project has considered two main premises:

· To minimize environmental impact, using technology system dismontable, with very low energetic cost embodied into materials and utilizing renowable energy for the operation of the building.
· Material transformation of the space to have a direct dialogue with nature.

The structural system allow the assembly and dismount of the pieces giving the possibility of reutilización of pieces in the last of it life-cycle.
The passive solar system consist in direct gain combined with water wall.
With these system thermal comfort with very low energetic cost is obtained.
