Project Description

On the site that was being used as a planting field we found the typical granite walls, a stone pit, some fruit trees and bushes. Those walls were recovered and the trees, the bushes and the stone pit were kept in their original place, in order to preserve the identity of the site.
The strong slope of the topography of about 5 meters between the street and the top of the site defined the planning of the house in two floors.
In the lower floor, we have a porch that allows car parking but also used for other activities. From this space, we have access to the laundry, the toilet, the storage room, the technical area and to the atrium that allows access the upper floor through the stairs.
On the upper floor, we have three bedrooms, one with dressing room and private bathroom, the other two have a shared bathroom. Both bathrooms have a private patio that allows natural illumination and ventilation. In the posterior zone, we have the office, the kitchen and the living room, which extend to the outside through the deck zone, connecting to the swimming pool area. In the East zone, we have the stairs, the corridor with a book shelf and a bathroom with an attached patio.
