The house is located in the Jardina area, in the municipality of San Cristóbal de La Laguna. It is in a residential area, located in a rural spot on the outskirts of the urban area.


A two-floor house is situated in such a way as to allow access with vehicle parking on its front facade from the road, and a rear garden, where the swimming pool is located, contextualising the house in its immediate surroundings.


Four exposed concrete beams, fixed 1 metre deep, act as a filter between the public and private space, welcoming occupants. This reinterpretation of the traditional viewpoint of the old, cloistered convents located in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, allows the occupants of the house to have views outside without being seen, being protected from the view of neighbours and strangers.


Its rear façade, much more permeable than the front, opens through windows and terraces to the Vega Lagunera and the distant landscape.
