This project is part of a personal exploration where different blocks and the void generated between them are protagonist.

The volume was proposed as a large white box that has been excavated, with different "cubes" of various materials (wood, exposed concrete, etc.) appearing within.

These "cubes" appear along the entire project at different scales: From the large main cube, white and container of the entire project, to medium sized cubes such as the wood (kitchen), exposed concrete (main bedroom), and painted yellow (guest bathroom), and smaller cubes, like some furniture.

The social area on ​​the first level was turned with a dual purpose: First, to lay out the social area on ​​the first level so that it overlooks not only the park in front of the house, but also the boardwalk and beach. Second, to break the continuity of the orthogonal walls of nearby houses, generating a particular vantage point from the street leading to the park.
