This 380-square meter building develops in three floors in order to adjust to the abrupt decline. The access to the house is through a pedestrian bridge that communicates the street with the upper terrace. Water fountains have been introduced to the terrace, generating a peaceful spot to observe the 360-degree views of the valley. Due to the mountainous topography, terraces, balconies and patios were developed in order to get a close look of the outside land, but direct contact with the soil is not common because everything happens above the ground.

The inside recalls a cavern. The main idea was to hide from the outside world while circulating, and open up to the views in those areas in which people remain.

The project offers three floors and a terrace, chosen as the point of access to the house. The upper floor hosts the social activities and has the best views. In the middle floor we can find the main bedroom, y and the bottom floor has the secondary bedrooms along with a playroom. This last floor also has a patio for private family activities.

In regards to the building materials, the sense was to adjust to the nature of the place. Some of the chosen materials were reinforced concrete and local rocks, in order to cause the lowest possible natural impact. Bodies of water were key to embellish the outdoor areas.
