The project files document a house comissioned by Erhard Josef Pascher. The house included a library, garage, workshop, small garden, swimming pool, sauna and terrace. The client asked for a solar power system and for the interior to have whitewashed walls, tiled floors and built-in cupboards. Miguel Guedes de Carvalho collaborated with Siza on this project. The house was not built.
