From the architect. The house is a direct result of the site’s complicated geometry.

In plan, perimetral lines are given by the highest possible occupation of the property, discounting setbacks (restrained either by municipal legislation, or by the neighborhood regulation).

Thus the nickname Offset House: a house that is the reflection of the sides of the lot.
