From the architect: The project is born in a volume that simulates a double height from which the ceilings descend towards the ends. This central space gathers the social spaces and from it the functions are distributed. The shape of the house a letter Y is a tribute also to the family name.

It was decided to lay the leg of the Y towards the southern dividing wall in order to open the bedrooms to the north. The need for the house to be accessible provided rooms that could be circulated in a wheelchair, trying to ensure that the surface program did not exceed 270m2 and the agreed budget.

For the slab was used a reinforced concrete structure that is covered with a colored sheet metal cover.
