Text description provided by the architects. The proposal responds to an specific program for a 4 members family.

The design is developed out of an existing foundation, from which it was necessary to define clarity on the volumes that constitute the house, considering the use of materials and the program that each box contains.

The stone box is the hermetic one; it contains the principal bathroom and services areas such as: storage, maid's room and garage. The wooden box contains all public areas living room, dining room, studio, bar, kitchen, tv room, visits and kids rooms. 

Access is through the void generated in between this 2, connecting directly to the living room, a double height space where the main stairs and the linking bridge between the boxes are located.

A metallic structure was proposed for the need of fast construction and lightness over the existing foundation, prefabricated materials were used and based on its modulation they were perforated to generate the visual relation in-between interior and exterior.
