This house is a product of the prolongation and transformation of an existing structure. The lifting of the roof is the principal movement that expands the view  of the historical center of the city. From the original beams the new levels are hung; the system is flexible and changes form according to the program's requirements.  Despite the variation of the central element of the project, the system maintains a geometric order based on the separation of the beams of the  original roof, details of the repeating joints and the use of wood as the main material.

Palabras llave : Architecture-Ecuador; single family dwelling; house between dividing walls; remodel; wood; stone.
