It should had responded to a limited budget, a dificult context and a minimal terrain. With the budget aproximating to 45,000 USdlls, a living room, a kitchen, a dinning room, a bathroom, a 1/2 bathroom, a dressing room, and a main bedroom were constructed within 73 m2.

My proposal was to open the house as much as possible to the sun, air, and a small existent garden. The height responds to the impact of the morning sun, that crawls all the way in through the 2 large windows to illuminate the space completely. Waking up, as well as having a meal, have an eternal interaction with the exterior, which is manipulated totally by nature (little garden).
