These two “boxes” or volumes are located in different levels, connected by the void: an interior patio open to the fresh air. The first block is occupied by the social area and is characterized by its permeability. This is achieved by the extensive use of tempered transparent glass in both sides of the axis that leads to the sea; as well as, the existence of an exterior social terrace that receives the guests. The second block, is receded from the front of the house and it houses the private area in two levels: an elevated area and a semibasement, both with views of the sea.
The program has been divided in two areas: the Private Area in which the bedrooms, the living room, the interior patio and the service area are located; and the Social Area which is occupied by the dining room, the living room, the kitchen and three terraces, two on the inside and the outside of the first level and another one on the second level.
- Semibasement: Three Bedrooms, each of them with Closet and Bathroom included.
- First Floor: Exterior Terrace, Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen and Guest Bathroom. Patio, located between the blocks, with a pool and the stairs that connect all levels. Second block: Laundry Room, Service Bathroom, Service Bedroom, Main Bedroom and Main Bathroom.
- Second Floor: Terrace with a second pool and grill area.
