House Α is formed by a main volume where common living spaces exist and three smaller discrete volumes that function as bedrooms. The blocks between them allow movement in the north and south, emphasizing the linear movements and the materiality of the spaces. The outdoor area and the swimming pool become the reference point for the design of the residence.
House B has a cross-shaped layout allowing the views to the sea from almost every room of the house. The design was carefully thought out considering its relationship to house A so that no visual disturbance would occur to it.
