Text description provided by the architects. It is the concept of the Chamacoco cosmos where the origin is the end. A 70-meter brick wall (no pillars) starts from the entrance on the ground floor and rises to close the private area in a spiral end.

The lot for the project is 10 x 14 meters, located in a suburban area of the city of Luque (5 km from Asuncion). The wall is the most direct means for privacy and security in a new neighborhood.

The ground floor, designed as an open plan, is occupied by the living room / dining area, courtyards, reflecting pools, swimming pool and services, all closed or opened by a sliding glass skin. The upper level is accessed from a perimeter ramp outside that supports the wall, or directly from a staircase located at the center of the spiral. On one end of the circulation strip on the upper floor lies an intimate living room separated by a bridge, that complements the bedrooms and bathroom. The bioclimatic proposal for ventilation through a scheme of cross ventilation and reflecting pools was essential to develop a project surrounded by walls, in an area so small.
