The strategy was to compact the program on the north edge of the plot in order to maximize its southern section. This decision was consolidated by the creation of a perfect square, a form that allowed the programmatic division of night functions to the north (garage + bedrooms) and daylight functions to the south (living spaces + kitchen). Volumetrically, the square is extruded and sculptured as a fragmented cube to accentuate the master bedroom as a dominant element in the overall composition. This bedroom is further delineated by the use of a different material (stained, red wood cladding) and is given an exclusive balcony space overlooking the southern garden. Moreover, it is symbolically detached from the rest of the house by a continuous glazed strip which will provide temporal light/shadow spatial effects.
The project is traditionally arranged with the living, daylight spaces on the ground floor to maximize the garden interaction, and the night/auxiliary functions on the first floor. The construction is conceived as a two bay system combining vertical masonry walls and horizontal concrete ceiling.
