Text description provided by the architects. A depth of field of 20 meters between two walls. A lot with a reduced width. Time, with its careless passage, eventually drag that place into a weak or even precarious state. A visibly ruined rear wall was dismounted and structural parts of wood were removed, both deformed by the same (passage of) time.

Starting from the supporting side walls, the original system of forces was restored using a light steel structure, which provided an alternative to accommodate a simple single housing program by applying a sequence of overlapping discontinuous floors.

A black painted triangular mass block, at the entrance of the house, filters the light that still trespasses the front door. From there, the spaces don't delimit clear boundaries between them but follow one another, with alternations of ceiling heights, rhythms and formal characteristics, until the open blue rooftop patio is reached.

Facing the garden there is a protruding volume covered in cork, reducing the sounds that come from a close playground of a school. The materials that are used stand out for its simplicity: delicate oak flooring, white and clear surfaces that contrast others in black, these severe and impositive.
