The project is approached as an answer to the place and the expectations of the users in terms of leisure, comfort and economical adjustment (160,000? = 650?/m2). The key principles were highlighted in the project and during the construction are:
a. The shape emerges from the orientation, from the prevailing winds and from the premise of enjoyment of the outside spaces and their views.
b. Honest architecture and material honesty are accepted.
c. Austerity in terms of means is assumed and beauty is found in the inexpensive.
First floor is defined by an exterior south-east oriented platform, which is the Terraza de Poniente. This terrace is strategically protected from north-west wind (Poniente), which is colder and strong, as well as the prevailing wind in the area. This concrete platform ensures spatial continuity between the indoor spaces, the flared porch, the terrace and the swimming-pool. All of them completed by the views to the rising sun and the sea. At the same time, the space includes two major elements which enhance its comfort: two stands on white polished concrete and two wicker pergolas on metallic structure. One of these is vertical as to reinforce the protection from the north wind while ensuring intimacy towards the neighbourhood. Life in Casa de Los Vientos happens mostly in this platform.Geometry here suggests the direct connexion with the logics of prevailing winds, as well as its relation with the living outdoor spaces and the views. From the stand of the Terraza de Levante a bent staircase leads to a second terrace in the roof floor. This is the Terraza de Levante, since the geometry of the walls and the roof provides protection for the days when Levante (wind from east) blows.
