The house is organized surrounding the internal patio where the pool is located. This way, all the social spaces are turned to this patio, exploring the city landscape ahead through apparent concrete brise soleil. These structures also grant some privacy to the terrace, given they interrupt the diagonal viewing from the street and condominium club. The individual rooms, otherwise, are turned to the side gardens, done through an internal patio that amplifies their privacy.

The laundry room is located on the lower level, alongside the social entrance and garage. Thus, the project of the house makes use of topographic variations as a way to highlight the elevated pure volume of the main floor.
