The landmark orientation marked the disposition of the house that sits on the south side where a dome runs through all that side and lets the light get into the hallways and the circulations of the house, while the public and private spaces are oriented toward the garden.

The access level is composed by an axis parallel to the south façade that vestibules the access and gets to the service area of the ballroom and swim- ming pool. These last two are arranged on an open floor overlooking the garden, by a portico of six columns and a translucent glass curtain. At the first level the public area lives through the terrace where the water mirror marks the continuity of the dome and sets the evidence of its sculptural intention, together with a piece of art, gives sense and warmth to the triple height. At the second level, 2 rectangular volumes parallel to each other and with different heights provide the necessary program for the private part of the house.

The correct handling of lattices and different textures on the walls give scale and character to the spaces of the project.
