The proposal seize and multiplies the distribution of the existing building, frees walls to generate spatial fluidity and unify the premises programme. “The encounter” is the key characteristic of this single-family home project for a couple with two daughters.
To the outside a sober as well as discreet façade leaves merely at sight the simple reading of volumes and materials.


On plan the connection between interior and exterior is achieved through a simple materials palette, the entrance hall goes into the dining room and from the patio the slate stone comes in to form part of the living room furniture. In section the house is organized around a triple-height central space wrapped by the run of the staircase.


Something fundamental in BAC projects is the use of the rooftops as an essential part of the design. In this one, in addition to the extension of the volume to be used as paint workshop, the levels set shape a couple of terraces that are integrated by using the hexagon as a module in different materials.


The architectural and functional requirements were met, meeting the needs of the inhabitants and meeting the objective of single-family housing for a couple with two daughters.
The Roof Garden is the main space of the house as it has designs and colors that surround its members.
