Text description provided by the architects. The site of Valencia is treated globally through the use of successive and parallel strips that follow the building's orientation. The sequence is from public to private, enriched by the topography of the street, the green slope, the garage, the pool and the garden. It finishes with the porch, which entry was made on the side of the house to avoid frontally. The interior uses the same mechanism, articulating the program in two strips.

From the manipulation of concrete and continuous finishing of the traditional construction of the area, it suggests an idea of lightness and absence. Devices that, together with the fluidity of the program, reach the goals of lightness and absence include: concrete columns are slimmer than the regulations with H steel profiles recovered, suppression of supports, treatment of continuous finishing as dry prefabricated panels and the use of filters, intermediate spaces and shadows.

Cross section
Cross section

The goal is that architecture and nature coexist with porosity and imbrications; therefore, cross and adiabatic ventilations have been placed in every room. A traditional and heavy construction has been transformed, in a contemporary way, to evoke modernistic pavilion architecture.
