In order to create a regular order in the plan organization, this house is defined by a single trace: a wall element. While the surface of the house is clad in slatted Freijó wood.

The starting point of this project is the house wall that unfolds the entire architectural design. The wall is the element of this house, longitudinal on the site, and located near the lot center. The house surface is clad in slatted Freijó wood, separating the garage from the front entrance and living from the utility rooms and the kitchen.
