A white chromatic volume, with a floor below the ground and two floors above, takes advantage of the solar orientation of the land, housing a social room and kitchen that simultaneously share the same space on the story 0. These social areas maintain a pleasant connection with a playground for future activities, under a porch formed by the suspended volume of 1st floor.
The presence of a lantern in the ceiling of the social zone, in order to capture light to an area with weak luminosity, rises up to the house roof, until defining the limits of an exiguous skylight, compressing the space of this tunnel, to the top. The lantern organizes all the spaces of the habitation.
The housing volume is also characterized by the extrusion of bodies, to give way to small balconies that make homogeneous and cohesive the design of the house, identifying only the sleeping spaces with sliding doors.
