Maravillosa vivienda. Lo único que me preocuparía el gasto de calefacción.

Una vivienda espectacular en acero, cristal y hormigón. Una seguridad extra en materia de protección contra incendios. La utilización de materiales ignífugos o aquellos que combaten la propagación son un extra para la seguridad de las personas y bienes.


Maravilloso proyecto! Nos encanta
