Due to the small land area be consisted in 6,50 m X 27,80 m, the strategy was to restrict the program of basic needs in order to keep only the minimal needs by the family. As a result, the project was designed with two floors, the ground floor consists on the social areas and above, on the first floor, the private rooms.

One of the premises of the project was to design integrated rooms on the social areas, thus the ground floor could be as open as possible, prioritizing the natural lightning and the cross ventilation. Moreover, the integration of the living – dining room, kitchen and backyard results in an ideal space to welcome friends, as the family’s custom.

To make this possible, the slab and all the structure are made in concrete, allowing that the height be concentrated on the side walls. It results in a double ceiling room living room with an automatic zenithal window, that helps on the natural lightning and ventilation of the residence.

The master bedroom also offers a view of the garden and the city’s downtown. On the both bedrooms, at the frontal part, the closure is made by corten steel sculpture developed by the plastic artist Nivaldo Tonon.
