The main idea of the project was based in two elements: the existing walls, at different levels, and the platforms created by those walls. The elevations of the two levels of the house are two broken lines that were created as continuation of the existing walls. The topography helps to dissimulate the house in the site. The distance between the two facade lines designs a platform where the exterior living spaces can happen.
