The project consists of a Plinth, a corridor space, a wall, a chimney, and three single-family houses. They aligned on a diagonal axis marked by the wall on the ground, which creates a conflict between the frontality of the land and the building’s diagonal juxtaposition. The wall demarcates the space and defines a series of related antagonisms- inside and outside, closed and open, mass and void, in-between and besides, behind and front. Apart from defining the space, the wall embeds, hides, separates and reveals the other parts of the building.
