This residence, standing at the head of a row of houses, has all the features of a functionalist 'white' villa: a flexible plan with sliding partitions, white-rendered walls, elongated strips of steel-framed windows, a steel structure clad but visible in the facade and at the balconies, and a roof terrace with a free-form spare room. The house has changed little over the years, except for a small staircase extension dating from the 1950s.
