The plot where the house is built didn’t have any special requirement. Because of that it was decided to create an “L” shaped prism oriented to south, wich is considered to be the best orientation in the Valencian region.

The daily part of the house is developed in the ground floor, with and open space concept completely connected with the garden throught huge crystal walls.

In the first floor are located the night areas, with open views to the garden and protected windows with composite lattices on the other side, giving privacy to the interior but alowing the sights and the crossed ventilation.

In our studio we considered as important the living spaces as the corridors. Because of that those ones have been treated carefully, trying to work with perspectives and lighting, as if they where part of an scenario.
