From the architect. Standing on a steeply inclined plot of land, this house articulates its layout of over 800 sqm in two volumes. 

The two-level residential area in light-colored masonry is set on a dark-hued base that neutralizes the slope of the terrain and houses the building mechanicals. 

The facades are made of colored in-situ concrete. The exterior woodwork is made of oak.
