Two overlapping volumes contain separate programs. The upper one contains the housing program, organized spaces around the central courtyard. This wide body, is drilled vertically, and it lands on the ground supported by another volume that houses the pool bottom.
Around the central courtyard is positioned all the domestic program: bedrooms, dining room and living rooms separated by an double sized space, the kitchen and laundry.
This floor creates visual cross-stringing that take advantage of the landscape. The image of the house pending challenges the topography while marking the horizontality of the volume.
