The commission for this house consisted of an addition to be occupied by two brothers. The new construction is situated on the second floor on top of the original slab with two rooms: the master bedroom of the existing house and an autonomous dwelling with independent access. The shared spaces are a covered eating area to the north and a terrace to the west with two stairs marking the independence of the spaces. The alignment of the pillars over the vertex of the existing slab or the misalignment of the pillars in the south portico are different ways of creating the relationship of the new with the existing.
