A wooden patio with trees, formed by the volumetry of the house and a concrete wall, articulates the entire program of the Coser House. The living room is enclosed in the boxed ground floor of this volume and wide windows open it to the external space. The inner dimensions of the living room 6.5m by 10.3m, and the low ceiling of 2.40m, create a sensation of coziness, accentuated by the textured of the concrete ceiling made with narrow wooden formwork. In this way, a desired horizontal proportion for this project is created.

In the two-story volume, arranged perpendicular to the living room, on the ground floor, is the service program, the kitchen and a TV room and, on the second floor, the three bedrooms. Sliding wooden brises filter the light into the inner ambient and the windows open out to the patio. The master bedroom extends outward to a wooden-decked solarium. In this space a ground fire can be used to cook a great bar-b-cue on a sunny day or to light the house on a dark night. The chimneys on the rooftop are of varied shapes, inspired in the chimneys on the rows of houses in the city of São Paulo.
