The house is to be inhabited during weekends; special occasions when persons, on the one hand, inhabit space during long periods of time and on the other hand, inhabit space in an informal and more distracted way.
For that reasons the configuration of house focuses on shadows as the main element that qualifies space, making space to change during the day and indeterminacy of physic and programmatic boundaries, making circulation as free as fluid is the relation between different spaces.

The configuration of the house poses multiple way of moving form one place to another, being through the center of the house or through its perimeter. The core is an ambiguous patio, where constantly moving shadows make it hard to say whether it is an inner or outer space. In order to highlight that idea, pillars are displayed randomly, avoiding the grid pattern and getting closer to the idea of the forest.
