Text description provided by the architects. The house is set in a plot with a long-wide ratio of 6 to 1, which emerges from rocks bathed by the sea. This two-story house plus basement has been built in an area of consolidated constructions The extreme proportion of the site together with the fact that the views are towards the north, have been the main conditions of the project. A 47 meters long dry stone wall is the backbone of the house.

This wall, together with the main house and a service shed, make up an open patio where the pool and the covered and uncovered terraces are located. On the ground floor, the presence of the stone wall is dominant and connects the sea with the pool. The living room and the dining room, together with the kitchen, form a continuous space that expands both North and South.

On the first floor, two patios were created, generating three volumes where the rooms are distributed. Through these interior patios, inhabitants get privacy, sun protection and enjoy the sea views. On the east side, the voids generated by these patios alternate with the voids generated by the covered terraces on the ground floor, to create a rhythm that defines the volumetric proposal of the house.
