The project responds to the morphology and topography of the terrain, taking advantage of its length to place the footprint of the house and achieve a greater garden area as well as more cubic meters, so the exercise consisted of designing the superposition of two volumes.

The first of these, a steel base that gives the feeling of solidity and rootedness to the land, at the same time opens to terrace and garden.

The second, a box with a finish based on earth and pigments to achieve a terracotta tone that breaks, generating courtyards that seem incisions, giving views and privacy inside.
