The compositional problem: the agreement between an irregular perimeter and an internal Cartesian system that allows defining the tours and spaces clearly and precisely. A container of naked simplicity obtained from the most absolute interior geometry reinforced with the unequal upper light, which, sometimes more intensely and others in a more subtle and soft, will highlight the clean edges of its geometry.


A white world, simple in the planimetry, and complex in the pieces that build the luminous coronations of the spaces. A white world that waits for the art that decides to choose it as a support.


 Three materials: stucco, marble and wood. Two colors: white and the one of the chosen wood. The idea: Do not distract attention, the achievement of neutral spaces.


The creation of a courtyard at the end of the "interior street" of access to the extension covered with large white marble slabs and which is intended to be opened whenever the weather permits, serves as a decompression right at the point of most architectural tension of our proposal, and connects us by winking a temporary space with the Casa Museo (Andalusian patio) and with the painting: Nude "Después del baño" by Joaquín Sorolla.
