A house built for a garden. Through a slowly developing dark ramp, a young Jacaranda tree bathes in sunlight. Bamboo and ferns disguise the boundaries of the plot, and in it, a continuous concrete core is born in the foundations and rises three levels. Floating slabs wrapped in glass extend from the core. Spaces open and merge with the gardens that surround them, blurring the line between interior and exterior.   A house where every detail was designed. A residence that ages with dignity like the weeping willow that rests by the water, embracing the passage of time.
