The house is located in an area with different housing types and a small warehouses. The lot is very narrow next to the street and allows the construction of two floors. In the lower floor we have the kitchen, the dining room and the living room. In the central zone we have the stairs, a bathroom and a laundry. Upstairs, we have two rooms with a balcony and a bathroom with a patio. On the main front we have the suite, with a bathroom illuminated by a skylight. Outside of the house is all white, to better define the shade, as well as in the inside, allowing the floating floor exalt its design.
