The two houses are located on a south facing slope in the town of Santa Eulalia del Río (Ibiza), facing the old town and the sea.  They are both organized on three levels with separate access through the upper street and one from down below at the Lower Floor level.  This enables that each house can comprise a program for two separate dwellings within them, where the Lower Level accomodates one bedroom and a separate living/ kitchen/ dining/ bathroom. The other two floors accomodate a house with three bedroms and a swimming pool at the roof.

A steel staircase and a lift connect all these levels. The strenght of this element is expressed by the selection of its cladding with concrete bricks. A set of prefabicated white concrete trays also provide privacy to it and add horizontallity to the north facade.

The corten steel that appear in the boundaries, entrance gates , the color of the external glazing units contrast with the white render walls and the exhuberance of the landscaped terraces that embrace both houses.  A set of white painted pérgolas invite some of the climbers to soften the facades and provide some shading.
