The object of study of this research is the not built residential project designed by Le Corbusier in 1942 for a farmnear Cherchell, Algeria. From the drawings that constitute the existing graphic documentation of this proposal, this studybased its interest in describing the project as an open process of architectural reflection on the idea of the house within abounded enclosure. A detailed analysis of the different mechanisms and project themes used by the architect through thedeveloping of new interpretive drawings of the original documentation. In this way the invariants and different versions thatbuilt the development of the proposal are present. Finally we conclude with a critical synthesis where we relate thearchitectural areas studied with similar solutions from Le Corbusier works and paradigmatic examples of the architecturalscene.
