The importance of visual language is present in all his work, including the terrace.Thanks to the vegetation, colors and textures, you can be immersed in a warm space that meets the qualities of indoor and outdoor space:Adjustment of the direct solar radiation, water and wind tightness, thermal comfort, ...It's also possible to adapt the terrace to day and night situations, thanks to its filters or lighting, which plays an important role in relating to the vegetation planted in place. This vegetation also has the role of sunscreen in the south-west facade, the only remaining visually exposed to outdoor conditions, specifically connected to a small courtyard also belonging to the restaurant itself.
