In this way the structure is considered as a scaffolding system, defined in laminated wood of section 10x40cm, detached from the volumetric body, composed by the assembled crossing of four beams of 10,5mts long and four double pillars of 6.0mts of height, placed punctually on a stone perimeter containment as a shoe that protects and establishes the lower level of the house.

As a complement, vertical circulation is worked as a hierarchical element, as a central skylight, which orders, distributes and grants spatiality to the programmatic resolution of the house.
