Kettal has had an international calling to design and innovation which came together to form Kettal Group. Kettal works with the most important names in the international design scene.

"This house - in its free relation to the ground, the trees, the sea - with constant proximity to the whole vast order of nature, acts as a re-orientator and 'shock absorber' and should provide the needed relaxations from the complications arising from daily problems." The most outstanding morphological traits are:

1 > Predominantly horizontal lines, emphasised by the wooden strips running across the structure, protruding 500 mm at the ends. Richard Neutra himself referred to them in various texts, as: Designed by Dion and Richard Neutra "Traditional Japanese architecture is horizontal; space is exclusively horizontal. Without a defined centre or axis, it extends as an aggregate of rooms of equal value, none of which is complete except in relation to the others. The space is flexible and transferable, without a fixed function. The use of the rooms varies over the course of the day and throughout the year."

2 > The columns are set back 100 mm to give full prominence to the roof. In addition, the columns are understated and the roof is slightly oversized. In spite of its formal strength, to some extent it seems as if the roof is floating lightly over the shell of the house.

3 > The characteristic chimney on the roof has been maintained, which houses the light sensors, air-conditioning unit and a small weather station. The technology used by the architect in this project is still quite astonishing even today, evidenced by the complex electrical installation, the special lighting systems, the telephone installation, the projectors, the electric stoves, the radio, the signage system and the temperature control device. This whole technological deployment has been updated with the development of a specific smart system to control everything in the house: air-conditioning, central heating, lighting, etc.

4 > The trellis structure continues beyond the roof to create an open space that can be used for different activities, while at the same time, accentuating the horizontal nature of the building.
