Private investors took on a project, which was to give up the maximum effective area to benefit the room quality.  The result was a “village on the roof”, similar to the structure of a Tunisian village, containing cubic modules of various shapes and characters, and an open village square as an access element.
The construction takes the structural idea into account: the support structure is made of timber-frame wall and ceiling slabs. A uniform surface plaster and sufficient insulation ensure the requested homogenous appearance.
