From the architect. The house is considered from an abstract conception of shape, a subjective act that structures the program with shape criteria.

At that first moment of this conception, and consequently, we did not have in mind functional criteria which give us the pattern to home's project, but what fed our "projective discipline" was the tectonics shape, able to bring an order to the material (mass) prior to the architectural. (sculpture – painting) it is constructed, then, a structure of relations (visual, sensory, etc.) that synthesize reasons and projective values​​.

The presence of plastic material - color, texture, brightness, vibrancy, transparency - are attributes of construction elements and the ones which give visual quality at the architectural object.

At this early stage we do not want or need show the plastic presence of the material, but rather let the conceived object becomes only a frozen form

This term "frozen form" gives us the clue about the projective arguments and reasoning have discoursed. Under these circumstances; the programme, the place, the environment, the views, the orientation, purely functional issues of architectonics become here in mere contents implicit subsequently.
