The main floor holds the social areas of the house, therefore we eliminated walls to create continuous spaces and ample ambients to integrate the gardens. The built area is maximised by getting rid of unnecessary circulation distances. On the second floor, the vertical openings and terraces maintain the sunlight as a constant but changing element throughout the daytime. One of the vertical openings allows the creation of a patio where different elements meet: the steel planters, red bricks, natural woods and vegetation. This patio can be enjoyed from the different spaces in the house, surprising both the users and the guests when looking through the windows.
