The house is aligned to generate a garden and greater openings on its southern side, taking advantage of daylight. By continuing the linear shape of the plot, the house takes shape as an elongated and elevated body sitting over a transparent volume which opens up onto the ground level's garden. This separates the house from the edges of the site, emphasizing its independency in relation to adjacent houses. Another rectangular volume is placed on the second level and continues the play of overlapped boxes, opening up to terraces on both of its sides. On the shortest sides of the site, the front and the back of the house are solid faces, while the house opens to both of its longitudinal sides.
