Structurally the project is composed by means of a defined basement in reinforced concrete walls, on which the upper volume rests; a 400x50x4 grid metal grid that frames the edges of the rectangle; within which random movements of interior bodies are generated that give dynamism, depth and movement to the formal expression of the house.
