The name of this residence is a result of its final planar shape that reminds the Greek letter "lamda" (Λ). A limited set of rules, such as following the urban frontline and creating a central yard -in immediate connection with the urban landscape environment through a raised garden- surrounded by an introvert building shape, led this study from its early beginning. This method establishes a code of spatial relationships within the syntactic domain of architectural language. The set of diagrams thus produced is recorded as both substance and indexical sign, which shift the focus away from existing conceptions of form in an intentional act of overcoming expressionism, materiality, function, landscape design and meaning.
