Located within a luxury housing development area on the outskirts of Madrid, the site benefits from a privileged situation. A large plot allows a perimetric garden, with extraordinary views. The neighbours are all members of their own family.

A happy family: father, mother and three children. An Ecuadorial woman who lives as if she was not there although she is essential for the smooth running of the house. Children under control in freedom, exclusive areas and common places.

All around an extensive garden enters the dwelling, qualifying, defining spaces, breaking non- desired proximities and provoking meeting places.
