The place has a steep topography on the back, that reduces significantly the surface of usable backyard. So, terraces and Galleries assume an important role within the project.

Ground Floor Plan
Ground Floor Plan

Each unit consists of a ground floor structured around a central bank containing services and organizing independent social roles in the project. Inside / outside connections where emphasized, through the use of sliding floor to ceiling carpentry.

Upstairs, by the street, secondary bedrooms where distributed. The master suite owns a terrace of significant dimensions that emphasizes its relations with the outside.

The construction presents itself with pure lines and volumes. Making it  appear  from the outside as a  single unit. The use of stone and white walls as unique materials, seek to simplify the architectural language. Glass carpentry and railings reinforces the concept.
