Casa Jonas was designed for a good friend and his family. It is a simple structure comprising two buildings, one which houses de garage, kitchen, laundry and service bedroom, and the second one with two bedrooms and master bath and dressing room. These two simple buildings are brought together by a double hight cement roof that covers, not only the two afore mentioned areas, but also the great room and master bedroom.

The house is surrounded by a garden with intricate jungle like landscape design with a pool and jacuzzi. The double wight is protected by a lattice that's placed in between the I steel columns that structure the whole roof with a rhythm aching with nostalgia for a more modern era.
