The house seeks its intimacy looking into his owns patios; the view to the exterior is achieved by subtle perspectives in diagonal.
The commission was to stablish a one floor project for its two retired inhabitants. Avoiding unevenness, except for a guest room.
Its boundary with the adjacent houses, involved a challenge because of the coexistence with discordant elevations; therefore, it is decided to include double height in the day areas. This not only integrates the dwelling with its surrounding but also, at the same time, offers a sensation of amplitude in the interior.
Its scheme in floor remembers the binuclear houses of Marcel Breuer, two blocks linked by circulations in which its interstice generates a roofless enclosure. In one of them, the day areas are organized, while in the other dwells the rooms and the studio.
Both of the nucleuses are contained by a discontinuous tectonic wall constructed by panels and confided by two beams in which over them, the block’s double heights.
The white belt presented as a base, generates patios whether for the day areas and for the private ones, and manifests a contradictory gesture between a light tectonic base against the heaviness of the stereotomic bodies that reaches the neighbor’s height and top off the structure.
The skylight offers lighted spaces that does not requires windows to the exterior, achieving that the house heads its views into its patios.
