What it's like to live near an immense and majestic mountain without paying homage to it.

We know that floor holds energy

mineral forces




The ROCA house is inspired by this dynamic relief

Constructed of iron stones

Its walls sometimes close blind and austere

Now they open up, incorporating the views to the far

Let the morning sun in

But protect yourself from the city

In the central courtyard are

The remote nature of the great mountain

And the intimate nature of family living spaces
