The residence is very close to the historic buildings of the neighborhood Monte Alegre and it stands out with its simple and contemporary design.

One of them is a linear pavilion that houses the kitchen, service areas and an office while the second volume is parallel to the street and includes the private areas such as the bedrooms and bathrooms.
