The basic geometry of this house is composed by a rectangular two-storey space. The rectangular plan is made up of a module arranged linearly and flanked by a single floor office space. On the ground floor the absence of any partitions creates a large single space allowing total flexibility in the occupation and use of space. Only the kitchen and guest toilet are detached from the main open space, functionally separating the services.

The immediate transition of the internal spaces towards the external spaces is achieved by ceiling high glass doors on almost the whole of the south facade, dissolving the notion of the boundary as the outside becomes an extension of the interior space.

The use of fair face concrete, glass, aluminium and wood in their purest form tends to a minimal approach providing notions of functionality.
