The challenge was to Promote two architectural experiences, one with the street, more austere and controlled, and the other with the vegetation at the back of the lot, more generous and open. The clients wanted to have a single-story house built with low construction costs, in a 2062-square-meter plot of land. The structural modulation, associated to the use of traditional construction technique, resulted in a low construction cost.
The organization of plan is done in such a way that internal spaces were laid out through a rigid structural modulation, based on spans that vary between 3, 6 and 12 meters, as well as some voids, whose function is to carry out the sectorization of the program, creating internal gardens, and establishing the relationship with the street and the external gardens.
