Submarino is a summer-house co-designed and inhabited by its architect-owner. Its foundations and walls were constructed with local techniques and materials, while the metal structure, window-frames and roof-metal-sheets were imported from the city. Thus, the house can be considered an effort to re-design tradition while customising prefabrication. As interior experience, it feels like a mosquito-proof out-door.
