The top floor was designed for receiving friends. A room, before hidden by a wall, was opened during the construction and used as a home theater, its walls and ceiling were kept in raw concrete, giving it a relaxed feeling. Slim metalic and woodden shelves were projeted especially for this room, contrasting it to the robustness of the concrete. At the external area was built a metalic pergola, optimazing the external use. Next to the existent jacuzzi, a bit of grass was planted, decreasing the sensation of dryness.
