The use materials and constructive ways sustainable, economic and requiring short labor has dictated all the design choices. The walls of the house are wood stuck, the internal structure is a steel frame, the exterior is made of a ventilated facade in ecological fiber cement.
The willingness / necessity of latch on to the history of this specific place, refusing definitely contemporary urban sprawl; orientation and location of settlements have been dictated by rural architecture. Building typology and finishing materials have been taken since the first industrial expansion.
Organization of the lot, poverty of the materials, the decision to build self made are related to the period of colonization of land happened at the hands of immigrants in the mid-1900s.
