From the architects; : The JTD House (which initials were created because of its owners’ names) it is geographically located in the Villa del Lago neighborhood, in Villa Carlos Paz city.

The JTD House (which is situated in a low-density residential neighborhood with rugged topography) is designed based on the possibilities and limitations of the area. The land presents a steep slope which crosses it longitudinally, standing on the street at the lowest level. The project was finally situated after an altimetric topography study of a high area with the aim of being able to dominate the privileged surrounding landscape.

We wanted that the place which was chosen represented a calm area, and which place could connect visually with the natural surroundings and with the exterior expansion. The main spaces of the dwelling were meant to be the suite sector and the one designated to the social activities. Likewise, it was also presented the intention of preserving the native vegetation and to enhance the impressive views of the lot.

The important point to stand out is the intention of maintaining the topographic accident as natural as possible: the first staircase houses the access hall and an HA staircase that leads to the social floor. The second terraced was created to generate an expansion of the social floor, which has a double function: gallery and barbeque area.

In the design, the visuals were privileged over the topography, and it was also taken as a premise for the ordering of the visual relationships “that the entire mountain range be seen”.
