- Model of a house built with concrete on a square terrain: 35 x 41 feet
The first floor of this house has an interesting room plan, although we found the social area made up of the living room, the dining room, and the kitchen, creating a “separate” space for the inclusion of a bedroom located very close to the main entrance, giving it greater functional autonomy.
The second floor has three bedrooms and an area has been created for toilets that have been divided into two, space (the largest) that includes a tub and shower as well as two sinks, the second space with a toilet and a lavatory
You can apply other colors in the design of the façade or expose the concrete in its natural color which is very used in modern house design, more in: Simple two-story house plans built on the square land.

The interior decoration is highlighted by the entrance with abundant natural light. The windows are framed in wood and the second level open in a swing, for more details of this project you can visit: Small two-story house with plans.

The project consists of two rooms and a living room, dining room and kitchen in the same zone, this social area connects directly with a large terrace.
The interesting thing about the architectural project is that although the construction is made of concrete it has been covered with aluminum panels and wooden rods in this way the sun is reflected and the wooden rods contain the air, it is ideal for dry and warm climates; in other types of climates, construction is feasible without this type of coating.
