The idea was to generate a stone podium that emerged from the basement itself, establishing numerous relationships with its closest environment, serving as the base for the concrete sculptural piece where the program's night area is located.
Materiality is a fundamental part of this project, the work with stone, textured white concrete, glass and wood, are the elements that define the project in an artisanal but at the same time highly technological way. The stone podium is distributed on two levels, the basement floor, which houses a study illuminated through two patios, a laundry room and the garage with the machine rooms, and the ground floor where the access to the living room is located. kitchen dining room and toilet.
The building takes over practically the entire plot, generating a landscaped space at the entrance.
