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.

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.
