The family house with a single floor is the last building before the protected area of the river banks. The implementation allows the shelter of the pool area and the kitchen porch from the northern winds, very common in this region.

Floor Plan

The access of Ribeira Street to the garage and the main entrance of the house is conducted on the East zone with a black concrete floor, allowing the opening views for the river in the west and south area of the house with the pool and the garden.
