Text description provided by the architects. The site of this house had a considerable slope. As a result, the living room was implemented in one of the higher floors. A single red wall defines and connects the different environments, openings, circulation and furnishings in one end.


The exposed concrete slab has a unifying presence in these spaces, a presence that is reinforced by the hydraulic tiles on the floor. The slab extends outwardly and becomes a descending awning.

The upper floor houses the bedrooms and a recreation area, which opens onto a garden and offers a generous view of the surroundings.

The construction system is simple, including a concrete structure, wooden frames, large windows and sliding doors connecting the indoor and outdoor spaces.
