The lot was chosen to benefit the most useful areas with a north orientation: living room, dining room, covered terrace and  master bedroom.

In the main floor entrance is located in the corner of the living room, making a first impression of “more in less”, with a diagonal crossing all the space without  columns and beams that limit the space. This area melts with the outside garden and the small pool. By opening the glassed doors we integrate the covered outdoor  and the interior so used in tropical weather.

The upper level has a master bedroom and a wide area use as a one big bedroom (for kids when they are little) or 2 small bedrooms (when the kids required independence) both zones share the toilet area. The top floor has a multifunctional space with a toilet area, than can be used for guest, a productive activity, or as an extra room if it is necessary.

Materials are expressed apparent, local precast concrete block in walls, apparent concrete  slabs in ceilings and polish cement floors. This house aims to be an exercise in economy in tropical unifamiliy houses.
