The project responds to the morphology and topography of the land.
For taking advantage of the length and achieve more garden area and constructed square meters, we placed the house over its own footprint.
The exercise was to work with the superposition of two volumes.
The first volume is a steel base that gives the impression of solidity and rootedness to the earth, at the same time it opens up to the terrace and garden.
The second volume is a box which has a mineral pigment finish to get a terracotta like tone. Gaps are left in the box forming patios that seem to make incisions in the volume creating views but keeping privacy inside.
