The commission was of a house of no more than 150 square meters, with an aesthetic-constructive proposal similar to the other houses built in the area by the studio, valued according to the clients both for its spatial richness and for the low maintenance required. It had to have a generous amount of space for meetings, a visually integrated kitchen, two bedrooms (one with a private bathroom) and an integrated living space to be used as an audio and video room that could also double as a guest bedroom. It should also have a grill and an expansion terrace.

The work was commissioned to the who, under the tutelage of its professionals, María Victoria Besonías and Guillermo de Almeida, went to work and using only two materials: concrete and glass. They were able to solve the integration with the landscape and respond to the formal, structural, functional, termination, and maintenance issues.

The heating system, since there is no natural gas in the area, was solved with an electric radiant floor system.
