The architects view (www.arquimas.es) at completion (2006): The house is conceived around a central core or glass box containing the stairs and a great void, that is perceived from anywhere in the house, connecting the three floors of the building and revealing itself to the outside via an open courtyard in the Southwest face. The house has one specific play in the sense that contrasts fullness and emptiness: the hole in the top terrace of the first floor, that  is the ceiling of the ground floor, is covered with a skylight, through which passes the daylight and by night the spotlights at the sides.  To elevations and volumetric level are a set of glass walls and solid walls, so between two parallel thicker walls are supported "trays" of floors that "fly" off the limits to the northwest presenting streamed and no parallel front lines between the different floors. It is intended that the temperature inside the house be controlled by the building itself, the central glass box containing the stairs is a natural "chimney" that regulates air flows and the internal temperature.  The building protects surfaces that receive more sunlight by using lattice slats and large overhangs on the glazing and recessing the openings in the walls or patios.
