    The architectural program is defined by the presence of endemic vegetation such as Chit Palmtrees (Thrinax Radiata) and a 'Huaya' tree (Melicoccus Bijugatus) located on the lot center, providing the built volumes with rich views.

    In both, first and second floor, the house is distributed by the central patio and the stairs volume. On the first floor, the connection between the living room and the dining room is achieved by the central patio, and the opening of its moving glass walls turns the first floor into a unified interior-exterior area. The second floor enjoys light and shadows games created by the tree tops.
