Casa Torre is structured on two levels, with one slightly above the sidewalk level and the other slightly below, seeking to convey the image that the house is developed on only one level. Viewed from the street, the house appears as a monolith suspended above the ground with no openings; however, this appearance is completely deconstructed, contrasting with its bright interior. Therefore, from the sidewalk level, a ramp invites us to enter the lot and elevates us to what we will call the first floor, where we find the hall and the social entrance of the house, located at its center. From this point, the house unfolds into two volumes: one more private, intended for the bedroom areas, and one more social, designated for the living, dining, and kitchen areas. Between these two volumes, a spacious courtyard provides independence and privacy to both areas, also helping to bring better illumination to all spaces and simultaneously creating an outdoor leisure area that extends to the lower level. The main entrance to the house is on the lower level, referred to as the ground floor, adjacent to the covered parking.
