Four concrete porticoes are set in the edges of the structure creating three real and imaginary longitudinal spaces. 

In the front the access yard, where beams emerge. Inside the house, the scene develops in freedom, delimited by containing planes. Finally, at the end of the non-disturbing crossing beams the gallery appears as the last scenography.
