The house is completely built in concrete formwork rough handmade with natural wood uncalibrated, increasing the roughness of the concrete and providing a wide range of colors for the walls , an effect enhanced by the indirect artificial light. Travertine marble flooring help hide sand beach shoes, and walnut wood adds warmth to the interiors. The furniture tied all the rooms under the same aesthetic, including the kitchen, which is incorporated to the public areas as another meeting place.
