The roof of the lower body contains a an endemic species garden, that provides views and privacy to the bedrooms, as well as a refuge for polinizing birds and insects. All spaces have views of the lake, natural light and ventilation .The design is consistent with the energy saving and resource preservation criteria of the studio.
