Text description provided by the architects. The house develops on two lots with a difference of seven meters between the ends. Between two volumes, the program is: bedrooms to the east and living rooms to the west. Below, is a basement with a porch used as a garage, a pool and the mechanical room.

The house has two patios, two gardens with different geographies: to the east, the bedrooms, the more intimate area with a tranquil oriental garden that provides the necessary light. To the west a long garden with North Oaks, with a pool where a window lets you see the industrial outskirts and the metro passing.
