Structurally, the dwelling takes the form of a group of four boxes, each surrounded by three layers of concrete, vines and glass, with trees with flowering branches growing on their green roofs. This assembly creates a facade that functions as a greenhouse, with chrome enclosed in glass and open to sunlight.

Each volume rises to a different height, like some kind of mountain range.
