With land area of 5000 square meters, the architects able to create a cross-shape plan which rotates according to the views. One enters the plot through a very discreet hallway which, as it opens, reveals the house set among the trees. A rotunda surrounds two walnut trees, and it functions as an external entrance hall that connects to a cube of concrete that serves as an access. It takes the visitor to an L-shaped slab, which is the great entrance to the garden and the terraces in the back.
The house is organized by a central space with a wood cylinder as a motif. It conceals a commode in the ground floor, and a study room in the first floor. This space divides the zones of the house: on one side, the ground floor contains the social part, opened and merged with the exterior; on the other side, the semiprivate area -more closed and intimate. The first floor holds the secondary bedrooms in the front and the master bedroom in the back of the house, with a view to the enormous garden. When the space is allowed, there always be a terrace or a partially covered zone that “dissolves” the difference between the internal and external spaces.
