Whose function is to avoid accumulations of water and moisture in the structure wall..” Very interesting renovation and extension of an existing structure, lovely site; interesting form with cantilever, interior volumes, wood cladding, fenestration; roof terraces, indoor / outdoor sensibility, ample glazing, natural light, views..
