The site is irregular, with a break at its midpoint, which slopes down towards the house. This level change is used as a way to relate/separate the two parts of the program. The swimming pool is placed on the upper platform and the annexes are located on the lower platform. Since the design requirements included two distinct zones, the double portico + level change provides good climatic characteristics for both uses. In this aspect the existing trees and the new arbour are especially important, as they provide shelter from the wind and shade the dining and preparation areas.
