The house has been designed as a big white box in which, diverse vertical cuts has been applied forming a general view of texture. The white box sits over a concrete exposed structure, that helps hide the windows of the different rooms of the basement.

The house has 3 facades; each one of them expresses the inner content. The principal facade was planned to be completely open, resulting in a complete view of the horizon for the social area. The lateral facade shows the transition from the open to the closed. It twists from the social front on the right to the private quarters on the left. Finally, the rear façade which is closed in and private.

The integration and flexibility are two main subjects in the project.

On one side, all the activities on the social area on the first level are all integrated in one space. You can appreciate that there is a full integration due to the lack of walls that divide areas. Every space tends to give you the sensation of amplitude. It is flexible in the way that you are bale to move furniture around use the extra space depending on the users necessities. This same concept is applied to the basement, where the living room and the patio all mix in, with big sliding glass doors.

On the other hand, we left away any type of vertical support that could interfere with the beautiful view of the horizon, in which the house is based. It lets you integrate the view with the project. To be bale to achieve this goal we needed to insert a beam that would be on a ledge leaving the corner as an open space and permitting a full view.

It is important to highlight the central patio. This is considered the heart of the project. It has three important functions.

In first place, it gives you a pleasant view of the surroundings from the social area.

In second place it helps illuminate with natural light and permit the necessary ventilation in the basement area.

Finally it separates the master bedroom from the social area, giving it not only privacy but an excellent view of the surroundings.
