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

Section A

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.
