To minimize the costs of reform the project continued with reduced dimensions, according to the program needs of the clients, and to better enjoy the spaces and the circulation areas are small. To increase the feel of space and large windows make a visual connection between the inside and the outside, giving the impression that the house is bigger. As well as the integrated spaces also provide a feeling of ample space.

Somehow the choice of materials to finish this house american up to reflect the traditional style, but the relationship between the spaces, between the external and internal environments emphasize the new proposals architectural.
