The dwelling occupies the full area of the plot. The house – set in the longest direction of the plot – and the courtyard are complementary. This organization of the space frees up a courtyard-path between the new building and the neighboring wall.
Each room is bounded by load-bearing walls made of vibro-pressed concrete blocks, as are the beams and lintels, all of them exposed. The outer wall is a heavy facade with high inertia and composed of 15 and 20-centimeter thick marés slabs.
