The house was constructed on a lot of 15 x 32 m with two upper floors and a basement. On the ground floor there is a double height entrance hall that leads on to the living and dinning rooms, kitchen and breakfast area. From almost every point there are magnificent views of the garden and teak terrace.

The combination between the areas and the finishes used in each one is what gives personality to the public zone keeping a sober and neutral atmosphere. The warmth of the waxed Italian wood in contrast with the quarry stone and granite are the answer to the low maintenance requirements and the adequate aging of the space with the natural patina that will acquire with time.

The three bedrooms, TV room and upper terrace are found on the second level. There is also and access to the attic designated as play room. The main bedroom and bathroom have double height and taking advantage of the ample space a loft was done inside of the bedroom to create a home-office.

The basement has two functions. The first one is to locate the installations for the house facilities and the second is the game room. In the game room the black corian bar stands out contrasting with the neutral floors and walls done in natural stone and wood. The bar has a water cut pattern similar to a lattice that lets the interior light come through.
