The site, a 162 m2 middle block plot has the peculiarity of having two 9m fronts, a north and a south facade. The height difference between the two allows placing the programs in an alternate way to each extreme of the plot, closing the house from its direct context. By making this procedure two volumes are formed, leaving a void in the center of the site.
