The proposal departs from the will to construct a building that would fit the dimensions of the site, avoiding oversized volumes, and would take advantage of the optimal qualities of the given situation, topography and natural vegetation. The access to the plot takes place through a single garage, which is common to the two houses. It is a concrete porch which frames the view and produces the first instant of shadow. From there starts a path leading to the house.
The villas are simple staggered volumes, supported on a platform facing the sea. Each villa has two clusters of rooms that are organized around an ample and almost exterior living room connecting the access patio to the terrace. The structure of exterior meeting spaces is repeated for each of the clusters, which contain a small shadowed patio, intimate and protected from the East.
