As a general aesthetic of the house, a rectangular plant wrapped in a brick skin was projected, which becomes permeable according to the visual or sunny needs. It is generated towards the street, behind this brick shell, a longitudinal patio that not only protects the privacy of the bedrooms but also generates a protection from the sun given by its orientation.
