The project is inspired by vernacular constructions with white walls and vertical openings and the criteria for this intervention were rationality, straightforwardness and good functioning.
The request was for two houses around a pool, and this was resolved with “L”-shaped buildings adapted to the geometry and topography of the site. The house that borders the northern edge of the plot has only one story in order to minimize its presence on the road. The long side of the “L” has greater volume, giving greater height to the living room, which opens on to the swimming pool area to the south, and a gallery of bedrooms facing east, with two floors. It is closed to the west with a wall that reaches the adjoining plot.
