Program

It is proposed a house with two floors.

The interior spatial distribution is separated by function and by floors. The social/ service area, at the ground-floor, is composed by the entrance hall, the toilet, the kitchen, the dining / living room, the vertical access to the 1st floor (stairs) and the garage.

Due to the longitudinal nature of the lot, and the fact that it only detains two fronts for construction, it was proposed an exterior yard at the center of the house to allow natural light to dining/living room and kitchen.
