The house is organized around three events: Firstly, a patio over street level, secondly, a promenade composed of ramps and staircases that goes from de parking to the roof garden and thirdly, a perimeter wall that defines the domesticated territory of the house.


Its interior space is characterized by the colonization of elements like: the oblique pillars that takes the horizontal efforts of potential earthquakes, the prefabricated skylights that introduce light to the deepest part of the house and the ramps. Those elements altogether create boundaries and tensions within the space.


The plan is L shape with public and private areas in each segment.


Regarding the expression of the house, it offers a silent façade to the street, which is no more than the simple echo of the wall that confines the small patio of the sleeping rooms. This elongated patio works as a filter towards the noisy movement of cars that pass tangent to the site.


Finally, a variety of mobile elements allow integrating or segregating different spaces at will.
