The owner was looking for an attic to live for a long time, as soon as he found this property he didnt doubt and he bought it. The current dwelling was converted from a 4 bed flat to a bright and airy space creating a continuity between interior and exterior, benefit from the spacious terrace and providing the most possible space to the remaining area.

The exterior areas could be used during all the year thanks to good weather of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

As from this point, we have considered the program with a simple scheme of uses, considering the terrace as regulator, qualifying its unique facade.

As a result we have established the wet areas at the main orientation‐ northeast‐ as the facade that works as organizing axis and filter. It is a solar and acoustic controller that reverses the traditional order offering a different and more logical experience: protects the resting areas and qualifies the recreation areas.

Regarding finishes selection, we have chosen oak for the internal finish floor, painted softwood for the furniture and joinery, and softwood thermally treated for the terrace. They respond to the same standards. Therefore, the facade has been unified by a glass plane and lacquered steel plate that respond to a spatial continuity with the same concepts: conceptual neatness and economic materials.
