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
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.
