On a lot barely 4 meters wide, the Madrid-based practice has intersected the exterior spaces, overhung by light elements, with a thin vertical prism, producing a sense of breadth and privacy without loss of brightness. In this way, each level of the house has an outdoor space of its own, whether a patio, a garden, or a terrace, expanding and complementing the interiors.

The day zone is on ground level, opening out to the garden cum swimming pool. The master bedroom takes up the floor above, with a spiral staircase floating over it and leading directly to the next story, where we find the other rooms, and then the roof deck. The basement is lit through a dug courtyard that takes up the entire front of the property.
