Taking advantage of irregular topography by using different levels is a prominent characteristic in the operation of wine cellars in the wine making process, and also in the relation between houses and their patios, views and pathways that define the landscape.

The dorms area is in the highest point looking overhead onto the living and dining rooms through an interior runner. This difference entails a higher ceiling in the public zones, from where there are exterior views through a glazed gallery. The intermediate level, composed by the kitchen and service room, is illuminated by small windows to take control of the sun.
