This private home studio is located in a high society residential area with houses on a narrow lot, full of vegetation. The intention is to maintain the vegetation as part of the interest for books and records of the landlord, owner of a major publisher.
The house is designed on several levels that are organized through a ramp around the library. Outside, there is a double facade, a glass plate covered by another made of wood, suggesting the trunk of a banana tree.
