The land we had to work with presented a 4 meter slope and 5 borders, in which 4 of them demanded a 3 meter distance from the construction, these factors contributed to compacity in the design process, despite that this posture wouldn’t match the client’s desires that looked for big open and covered spaces for him to receive his family.

The solution we went for was fusing the recreation area into the residence’s program, integrating the kitchen’s space with dining and tv rooms, barbecue equipment and a pool, resulting in a big living space distributed in a single elevated floor and separated from the private area, leaving space on the ground for garage and service area.
