Text description provided by the architects. The plot, like all those of the same alignment, has the particularity of being limited at the back by another much higher level which situates the dwellings on the base of a high floor through which the access occurs. With its front facing north, the solution of the housing is also conditioned by the two lateral setbacks that fix the plan and by the minimum width dimensions of the plot. The interior layout is organized into two areas that occupy the northern and southern extremities of the construction; between them appear the elements of communication and a patio facing the interior space through large panes of glass.

The building is a block of stone with holes carved in the form of cracks, very compact, placed on a base, also of stone, that occupies the entire parcel and that leaves on the southern edge against the wall of the neighboring property a water channel and a garden for climbing-plants.
