This house was proyected with two volumes. the first one overlooking the ruta 10, which contains the service area. and the second one overlooking the garden, pool and sea. on the ground floor 3 bedrooms and in the first floor the social area with an amazing view to the punta piedras beach.

The proyect has the two volumes facing each other connecting the ground floor by a terrace as a transition area, which creates a straight dialogue between each other. At the same time these two volumes diferenciate each other. the service area is a closed and heavy block and the social area is more open and transparent opening itself to the most important views to the terrace and the sea.
