The social area locate on the first level is one large space that completely integrates its diverse uses (living/dining/kitchen/terrace) and also integrates itself with the exterior thanks to the collision between the exterior gardens and a corner of the social area. This corner is column-free because it has a cantilevered structure.
The bedrooms are also located on the first level; the area where they are located has the ability to become independent and separate of the social area by closing a sliding door. the service area is also located on the same level.
The terrace level is purely social: living, dining, BBQ, bar, pool and resting areas. The materials chosen have a rustic quality and vegetation was included in the interior in order to reinforce the relationship between user and nature. The project has the following areas:
