A proposal for a student hostel in Arcadia whose integration in the unique natural environment of the area has been a challenge for us. With the aim to take advantage of the strong inclination of the plot, we were led to the creation of different levels and underground spaces for all the parts of the complex apart from the units where the students’ rooms are placed. The material choice was carefully made in order that the unit becomes part of the environment avoiding any imitation of it. Stone, concrete, metal and wood were the tools that led to the final result.
