Diego commissioned a house specifically for his needs and the needs of Frida, his wife. The story of their marriage reads like a tragedy. Diego, who never felt restrained by his marriage, lived in the larger, red unit which includes a generous, two story studio space. Frida however, resided in the blue unit which was her childhood home.. The rooftop bridge that links the two units is an irrational design move which appears to reflect the constant state of tension between Diego and Frida.
