These constructions for their constructive time presents nonconventional height. The urban density of this road presents buildings with different temporal characteristics, and for that reason, with different constructive approaches, with different elevations, materials, etc… a result of the growth and evolution of this road.

Formal and functional constraints
It was important to keep the alignment of the house with the existing buildings in order to avoid formal irregularities in the street development.

Concerning the volume, the house will be distributed in two floors (ground floor and 1st floor), which are dissimulated in the facade with horizontal lines to point some alignments with the surrounding buildings.

It is proposed a house with two floors. The interior spatial distribution is separated by function and by floors. The social/ service area, at the ground-floor, is composed by the entrance hall, the toilet, the kitchen, the dining / living room, the vertical access to the 1st floor (stairs) and the garage.

Due to the longitudinal nature of the lot, and the fact that it only detains two fronts for construction, it was proposed an exterior yard at the center of the house to allow natural light to dining/living room and kitchen.
