The body of the garage was integrated in the house, creating a service patio on the north side and a sheltered passage for the house entry, allowing the south side to be occupied for recreational proposes, with pool, deck and garden.

The house is divided into three floors, the first being for the common areas, living room, kitchen, laundry and garage. In the middle floor we have the bedrooms and office, and a kind of attic in the last level, where a more intimate and reserved room is settle, also beneficing from a south facing terrace.
