The student has understood, by analysis, the relation between the house and its cultural context, inserted in a real place of the suburb in Mendoza, considering the close relationship between nature, location and landscape.

Particularly, she has designed the spaces of her project considering their activities, differentiating them in public and private, which are parts that configurate an architectural unit.

Finally, she has also understood the caracteristics of the inner and exterior spaces and relatinationating them, she could discover the intermediate spaces they produce, and that they are the bridge to link architecture with its landscape.
