This work received the Colegio de Arquitectos Vasconavarro Award in 1997.

The circular sector shaped site slopes to the west with interesting views of Mount Jaízkibel. The garden has an important number of old and well sized oaks.

The owners, an elder couple with married children, are very fond of paintings and he is a painter himself. They wanted a comfortable house, easy for everyday use, and with nice guest headquarters. They particularly like the views, privacy and sunny outdoor space.

 The plan of the house evolves around a south oriented patio with a fireplace well protected from northwest winds. The cross section of the house slopes with the natural ground and the ground floor has three levels that enrichen the exterior volumes and indoor space.
