The building is located in the Restelo Economic Neighbourhood, and is made up of two-storey, single-family townhouses with ceramic tile roofs. In the original configuration of the complex there was a characteristic opposition between the continuous fronts facing the streets and more indented back elevations with protruding volumes.

The project proposes the extension of the dwelling on the two floors to the back, using a language clearly identifiable in time and allowing the pre-existence to be read.
