The  orientation of the ground defined the disposition of the house that lies at the South side, where a dome covers that entire end and it makes it possible to light the halls and circulations of the house; the public and private spaces face the garden.

The entrance level is made up of an axis parallel to the South frontage that gives access and includes the services of the party room and swimming pool. These two services are in a free story facing the garden, with six columns and a translucent crystal curtain. In the first level, the public area faces the balcony. Here the water mirror marks the continuity of the dome and gives evidence to its sculptural purpose, which together with a masterpiece, it gives sense and warm to the triple height and the terrace.

In the upper floor, two parallel rectangular masses, with different heights, provide the needed spaces to the private program of the house. The right choice of lattices and the different textures of the walls give scale and nature to the spaces of the project.
