From the architect: The only condition that was presented to us was the existence of a ground floor and a maximum area of approximately 230.00 m2. Taking into account the surroundings of the place, our first approach was to close as much as possible the dwelling in its lateral relation with the neighbors, having only a frank relation with the front and the garden tardoz.
It was the customer's choice to have an Open Space that maximized the relationship between the social zones as much as possible and in that sense, an interior patio was created that welcomes us in the entrance area. In this way we visualize the entire entrance area, kitchen area, living area and dining area that function as one. In this first moment also establish relation with the hall of the rooms, that leads us to the exit to the porch and later garden.
Volumetrically we chose to create two waters clearly separated by the corridor and inner courtyard, marking the separation between social and private zone. This break allows us inwardly to have feet-rights of different heights that give a very marked character to each one of the different divisions.
