The lot is formidable with magnificent views over the Lozoya Valley and the Peaks of Guadarrama. But it has a drawback: there is a difference of over twenty feet between the highest and the lowest point, along with a very rugged topography of huge granite rocks.

The program is very simple: it is a house built for a musician without a family, so only two bedrooms were needed. The owner needed a music studio and a large salon.

The project is installed horizontally on a concrete body recessed against the mountain, which contains small dressing rooms and an indoor pool. Also, the structure has two powerful pillars. Over this structure is built another large steel frame with a long overhanging bearing the house.

Large overhanging terraces extend each of the rooms to the outside. The house flies over the ground, constructing a horizontal surface that did not exist in the original lot.
