Say the the architects, “Airy rooms, without fanfare . What matters is the object interaction with their environment. The gaps raise the eternal tension between the natural and the human impact.”

“Social areas are linked to the gaps on the dividing north and the bedrooms are slightly separated from the dividing south. Thus the spatial continuity between the common areas of housing and seeks to integrate land uses between inside and outside.”

“The main materials used are rustic concrete on the top and black metal in the side walls, intended to minimize maintenance of housing was decisive in the choice of materiality.”

“The supporting structure is solved with continuous common brick walls, supported on concrete foundations and metal columns at corner windows. The flat roof was executed in rustic concrete.”

“In order to minimize the impact of moisture, as it is an area with lots of greenery and little sunlight, it was decided to take the peripheral walls in black metal. The carpenters are natural aluminum combining mobile and fixed panels. The interiors have granite floors and kitchen and bathroom areas are covered in mosaic tiles.”
