The ensemble of new and old structures is joined into a whole by plastered double masonry walls. The mineral plaster is painted in a warm shade of grey. Red fair-faced brickwork was used to carry out the covered, shared exterior spaces. The masonry is inverted. This causes irregularities that enliven the look of the masonry. In contrast to the masonry, the veranda is carried out as an archaic site concrete structure with a sculptural character. Continuous flooring made of raw hard concrete slabs on the veranda and terraces helps converge the various structures. Thanks to the artisanal character of the materials and the lively surface textures, the room quality of the residential spaces is high.
