The house is thought as a retirement home, a place of disconnection and rest where at the same time they can spend long periods out of town. Taking into account that the house was designed for a large family and with guests, we wanted the house to have privacy and views as a priority.

The house is organized into three independent volumes housed within a large sloping roof, the space between these three volumes generates a covered terrace that becomes the social place during the day.

Each volume responds to a function and part of the program, in one block are the room, in another the social part and in another the kitchen and services. The communication between these is done through covered and semi-open corridors part of this large roof that also works as a covered terrace in each of the parts and as a space between interior and exterior.
