The main entrance to the house is located on the first level were we find the pedestrian access on the right side, seen from the back.

The concept was to create a house that could enjoy the lagoon in front of which it is located, with the sea as background scenery.

The house seeks to be as transparent as possible to take advantage of the scenery, but a skin formed of plates with varying thickness was added. The same way as the colonial-era balconies in Lima allowed having a filter to “see but not be seen”, this resource gave the house a filter from the exterior that can defend it from physical and social exposure.

Its distribution, allows to create a stone base were the intimate zones and dormitories are located, and in the upper level of the lagoon the social zones is placed.

This part of the house is flexible and allows the integration of the terraces, the living room and the dining room to form a grand space.

The array has a plinth in fine strips of machine-cut talamoye stone and the upper part is a glass box that protects itself with the plaques in the manner of a balcony. At the back, to distinguish the difference of the architectural program of the house, a box is located with who additional, more protected and closed, dormitories.
