The proposal was to divide the house in two volumes. The first one is a solid box covered with whitewash, and its “muxarabi” windows filter the light and allow permanent ventilation. It is the result of the region’s typical construction method, a legacy from colonial times.

The approach driveway from the road comes from the north-west and is incised into the terrain. It starts with an embankment on both sides and is then flanked by a retaining wall that, as a building element, rises continuously out of the ground and reaches storey height towards the entrance.
