This residential project emerges from the trapezoidal shape of the plot where is located, which defined the construction into three clearly settled volumes adapted to the site’s conditions.
One of the project’s feature is the integration of vegetation in the design, both outside and inside. To the exterior, the trees were considered to wrap the building, and generate different shadows and color reflections on the façade at different times of the year, as if it were a blank canvas. Inside, the green of the dense vegetation contrasts with the black stone floors and the solidity of the walls, achieving a sensory balance.
The main access is a double height lobby, with various perceptions and visual frames created by light shafts, a staircase and natural elements such as the trees and a water mirror. The walls that shape this area, divide the spaces into private and public areas.
The ground floor, is organized into two blocks each with a different purpose: the left side is a solid cube that houses the studio and the master bedroom, which is divided from the social area by an interior patio, promoting a serene and contemplative environment with views towards the garden and the water mirror. The right side -the social area- is a rectangle closed to the west by a large enclosure and opened to the interior through a floor-to-ceiling windows, creating a sober transparency towards the central garden.
The transition to the private spaces allows the user to walk the house and meet different angles that achieve interesting visual finishes, as well as sensations transmitted by a pure white architecture, which takes different shades as time goes by.
