With the basis of Universal Habitability in mind, the Boat House 208 floats like a palafitte over the water mass of the touristic complex of El Morro; three clean line volumes content the residential program for 4 generic users. At the base, there are two access ways, responding differently to the access quality of the place, one from the street, and parking lot, and the other one from the docking area. Both paths go directly to the social areas, to the back of the house, and to the vertical circulation through two upper floors. The second level is comprised by three secondary rooms with individual services. Circulation leading to these rooms goes through a alley-balcony towards the double height in the dining room, with access to the Cinema Room with 12 seats. The third and last floor functions as a self-bearing structural and programmatic box, which lays on top of the whole volume. This hierarchical quality goes along with the location of the main room, with a bathroom and walk-in closet. In addition, this floor holds the gym and open terraces open to the views of the touristic complex.
