Access from above implies generating a platform for car parking, and from this base descending through stairs and concrete retainers, which cut the ground transversely and diagonally to shape the "mouth" of access. The house intends to be under the top view, so as not to cover the hill and its vegetation is located on the edge of the elevation.

The access configured by the access crack divides the volume into two wings, one public and the other private, which, separated by an interior-exterior patio and a double height, generate a break in the volumetry adopting the morphology of the mountain. The public area is supported on the ground by a concrete beam and lower plinth which runs the entire length of the house, intersecting with the interior volume of pieces, which is suspended but slightly supported by diagonal steel beams that are born from the socket.

In this intersection of volumetry and basement, from the initial void, the staircase to the second floor is located, which leads to the main piece which is the finish of the fold of the roof on the first floor, forming a terrace-viewpoint on it. facing the hillside. Thus, the house is transformed into a single continuous element that rests on and hangs from the hill, to open all its views toward the mountainous landscape.
