Text description provided by the architects. The RAMOS House refers to the Case Study Houses (CSH) program in the mid-40's. It is projected on a very particular site with a practically triangular shape.

One of the sides of the triangle was taken to move the house parallel to that axis; this decision was reached to take advantage of the south orientation and the green views, turning their back on the adjoining areas.

The house is developed on three levels.
The basement level leads to parking and services taking advantage of the unevenness between one side of the triangular site and the other, leaving these under the house and garden.
