The first intention will be to limit the exterior spaces through a new built volume generating a triangulation between this, the existing house, and the pool. The intention is to separate the lived spaces of intimate spaces in relation to the climate, solar orientation, visual, topography, and vegetation.

The ingredients introduced into the architectural equation (adding to implementation intentions in place and the response to the program) to IV are the structure, human scale, modulation, and the atmosphere. All these ingredients are embodied through two main systems in place: Walls + Vaults and service packs.
