The house is conceived as a volume, built entirely by metal, covered with vertical wood, color white lead, seeking to keep the warmth and simplicity of these noble materials, without losing the comfort of the place.

The windows of the bathrooms and hallways have wooden and shaded keeping the privacy allowing a bright space throughout the year, along with skylights connecting the second floor bedrooms each other.
