The project is divided into 4 houses, each with a land area of 120m2, which means that ventilation and natural lighting are achieved through patios and perforations. The built area ranges from 245 m2 to 275 m2 and is divided into three levels. The patios are an important element in the design, since they unify the houses with each other, respecting sunlight and particular programs.

On the ground floor the social area is generated, on the first level the private area of the secondary rooms and TV room or study, finally, on the second level is the main room and the services. On each level, patios with high-rise walls refer to Mexican architecture, to its patios, which are developed as flexible spaces for the user.
