The briefing was to build a three-bedroom house on top of a warehouse built in the 80’s, where part of the roof was made with a flat slab and a small balcony, precisely with that idea of later building the house.

Given the constraints of the existing warehouse, the house shape turns out to be automatically set: a box that rests on the existing structure.
