The house is part of a peripheral context, characterised by a diffuse urban environment. To integrate and contribute to the stability of the environment, the proposal is implanted in the ground, providing space for walking and defining the boundary of the house lot.
On the other side, the relationship with pre-existing elements defines all the volumes. The extensive cobblestone of only one floor, perpendicular to the street and extended to the limit, is complemented by two cross-cut volumes, coated with wood, moving south. One of these volumes is the kitchen. The second, which is facing the street, is the suite. It is this lower body that leans on land's limit at the south-side, solving the complex relationship with the neighbouring house.
Albeit with a contemporary language, absorbable materials are not avoided, guaranteeing an existential comfort and conferring a plastic identity: zinc and pine wood slats, which in almost craftsmanship, seeking a universal language, but always connected to the truth of materials and time.
The building unfolds on two floors, with one in the basement. The main body ground, facing the inside of the allotment, assuring the best quarters to living spaces.
The bedrooms are on the eastern side, protected by a small inner courtyard, which serves as ventilation and light. The suite is situated in the south wing, in direct relation to the outer space.
To the west, the house moves away from the allotment boundary, creating a covered outdoor space with barbecue area and outdoor canopy.
To the south, the room turns to a narrow but extensive garden, through a deck area and tongue, which minimize the most aggressive exposure to sun rays.
The northern elevation is more restrained, with occasional openings from the main hallway. Taking advantage of the diffuse illumination from the northern side, the corridor assumes a scenic character, becoming a key element in the house experience.
