The family that lives inside is also small; a couple, a child and 2 cats. The program demands are the same of most private houses; bedrooms, bathroom, open kitchen and etc. But the most important demand is the need of a very fast construction in the minimum size as possible. The result is 89 square meters in Steel Frame.
