From the architect. The construction area, occupied before with a house, several support structures, a porch and a upland, keeps an old wall, made of stone, that subdivides it in two platforms, being one of them perfectly on level, in the interior of the field, and being the other one ramped into the street.

This two platforms insinuate also the existence of a withdrawn area from the surroundings and the street, and a nearest area which maintains a highest proximity with the street. The proposal is the result of the maintenance of the referred wall in stone as a regulator element of two distinct realities, proposing also an object that revalues this dichotomy and defends it.

The house is located somewhere upside the wall, allowing a semi-suspension relationship that values a certain duality between the creation of a very regular/rational image into the street and simultaneously a very arbitrary image into the other side of the field.

It allows also a kind of linear functional distribution, solving functional spaces into the backyard, in East side and bringing the main permanence spaces into the street, in Oest. It expands the visual connection between the rooms and living or dinner rooms with the landscape and controls the physical and visual connection of the rest of the spaces with the private exterior areas, in East.

It solves the parking areas under the suspended constructed volume at the same time that offers a more privacy connection between the different interior areas with the balcony and mainly with the surroundings. It looks to achieve, mainly, a correct location that simplifies and offers a better distributive connection with the physical particularities of the intervention site plan.
