Text description provided by the architects. This project is located in a suburban lot 20 x 50 meters in the neighborhood of "Colastiné", tectonically defined by two aspects, firstly the use of brick as a reference material, and secondly, the metal gable roofs.

The weightless "metal blanket", independent of the walls, defines the social space of the architectural program in a succession of entry, kitchen, living-dining room and multipurpose barbecue area, that end on the main views of the pool and park. Glass envelopes interconnect between the indoor and outdoor spaces, allowing for this dialectic that blurs the boundaries between "inside" and "outside".

Juxtaposed on this social program, we lay out the volume containing the private area, where we worked with a less permeable enclosure, in order to generate more privacy without losing the necessary lighting and ventilation, contemplating the bioclimatic situation of such spaces.
