The project consists of a new house on the north coast of Menorca. This is a plot on the second row of houses from the sea, which faces two streets that are on two different levels. The core and character of the neighborhood where the property was built is the result of self home building, which explains the use of local construction materials. The presence of latticework of different textures and colors stands out in this area. This is why integrating the building to its surroundings was done by means of lattice facades and a humble, austere architecture.
The irregularity of the plot led to the creation of two accessible courtyards, which aids in the transition between the street and the house. The trapezoidal patios provided a house with mostly orthogonal geometry.

In this project the majority of the building materials were locally sourced or produced in Menorca, such as beams and concrete (breeze) blocks.
