The house scheme, designed for a family of three with potential grow in the future, protects the living spaces from a visually uninteresting street, and arranges the principal internal living areas around a spacious courtyard. There is a sharp contrast between the closed exterior and the interior, opened to three internal courtyards and terraces.

The accommodation is disposed over three levels: the ground floor contains the garage, two bedrooms, living room and an open kitchen which constitute the main space of the house. The space flows into the main courtyard through a long window. Vertically a double height space connects the living room with the first floor, where a library and two rooms open to an exterior terrace. A swimming pool is located above the garage, in the sunniest place of the plot, maximising the solar gain in the summer.
