in which the formal solution is developed in relation to the spaces animated by light. 

The house adapts to topography establishing the most intense relationship with the environment, blocking itself off from the neighboring plots with mural proposal with openings directed towards the best views. The internal façade, is a composition of large concrete frames and transparent windows, open to morning sun, to the light and to garden which adds privacy. The materiality, the bare concrete of all acts as unifying element. The section recognizes different activities of home, and the central hall, is the place which links the different levels with the aim of framing that landscape which one felt should not be touched.
