The house is composed by cubes in different levels with different heights and made of different materials.
Material range goes from the closeness of concrete to the openness of glass (Photo: Maricarmen Chavez Galas).
The house is made of concrete. The ceiling and the floor are covered by wood. The corridor walls are covered by slates slabs. The dining room and the living room are separated by a onyx slab suspended by metal posts. The concrete walls besides the stairs receive the light of the skylight that is over it. The private area has wooden floor and concrete ceiling.

The house access is directly connected to a narrow corridor. The corridor ends at the dinning room and is crowned by an onyx slab. At the end of the corridor are located also the stairs. At the second level the stairs end in a corridor that connects the bedrooms. At the master bedroom is a Jacuzzi against the window. At the other side of the bedroom is a crystal sliding door that goes to the terrace.
