Roof dormer luminar is a typical local detail, frequently used to bring more light and height into narrow attic spaces of old local houses.

Simple volume of a local house is combined with the volume of luminar 2.0 erasing the clear bounary of two solids, bledning them into one volume. Niches created inside the volume provide a shade for rooms and balconies, but also enrich the plasticity of the volume. From morning till dawn, house adopts play of sunlight and sharp mediterranean shadows.
