Text description provided by the architects. The project is a house on a corner, in a gated community in the city of Córdoba, Argentina. Typologically, it has a longitudinal design on two levels, through which a horizontal axis of circulation structures the main spaces.

The vertical circulation core is materialized as a large glass prism, serving a dual function as a connector between the two levels and as a sculptural object.

On the ground floor are the public spaces, and on the upper floor are the private spaces.

It is configured as a closed volume towards the street due to privacy issues and sunlight (facing south), and fully opened towards the interior garden. The protection of this large glass surface facing northwest, is manifested by a double skin of perforated metal mobile parasols, allowing visual permeability.

The facades are configured through large panes of austere materials, including concrete, glass and metal.
