A small plot, almost square, wedged between three others already consolidated, with its access to the east side and one of its dividing sides facing south, serve as a starting point to lay out a white volume with its wedge-shaped edges, which sits displaced on a stone base, resulting from the intersection of both volumes a double height that connects both volumes.
It is this stone base that serves to house the day area and the main room that is located in its appendix. All the outdoor pool and terrace space is treated as a single space and incorporated into the interior, establishing a total exterior-interior union.
The meeting point between the white volume and the stone volume is where the void that relates the upper part to the lower part is, and it is where the vertical circulations take place.
