A tight budget and precise specifications meant the design had to have two levels and an interior expression defined by the use of wood. The articulation of this structure is different for the two levels, creating different relations with the horizon. Upstairs, in the common areas, the perimeter is demarcated by the repetition and variation of wood; downstairs the bedrooms are characterized by a horizontal window, detached from the wooden structure. These simple variations create different corners and views, creating distance and proximity with the outside, taking to an extreme the project condition as a haven by the sea.
