The project was resolved in two large volumes, by way of boxes of apparent concrete, oriented towards the tree-lined avenue to frame the best views towards the context.
The penthhouse is located on the last two levels and has a double height that articulates the public spaces of the house on its two levels.
On the back of the property, the building is tucked into its western façade to generate a series of terraces that give sun protection and take advantage of the views towards the Spain park.
