The commission was to develop a house under the standards of the real estate business, a basic and optimized program complemented by a strategy of exterior terraces and main rooms open to the panoramic view.

In response to a sunken site with a gentle slope, with glimpses of ocean views, the program aims to raise the programmatic piano nobile of the house, from the perpendicular overlap of 2 volumes of simple lines that make up a new dimension. The first, in elevation, in the direction of the views of the bay, which makes up the access and contains the public spaces.

The second, as a cross pavilion at natural ground level, which connects the private plane through a glazed gallery.

Transparency is worked integrally with furnishings on site, which filter light, give the required privacy, and activate different spaces as required by users.

The house is closed, sheltered at the public access area, unfolding and opening to the views.

To the southwest, we propose an exterior corridor as a traditional strategy to control radiation, generating a permeable facade that adequately links the interior with the garden.

Public and service indoor floors are black slate stone, 60x60 cms, and private floors are 8mm Eterwood. Exterior floors are pine wood deck, 2"x3". The ceiling is made of pine wood paneling 1"x3", anchored to the joists, forming a rigid diaphragm with the ceiling OSB boards and plywood boards of the mezzanine .

All the walls between rooms are partitions with a double row of galvanized steel studs, covered with 15mm OSB boards and 15mm plasterboards.
