Respectful Implantation

The implantation responds to the topography of the place where it lays. The land slopes from West to East with interesting views of the City and an imposing presence of autochthonous vegetation. The studied location of the windows and lucernes, together with the use of filters and moving layers generate that the natural light becomes protagonist at the different timetable of the day and seasons of the year.

Volumetric and Functional Simplicity

The starting idea takes the natural slope with its irregularities and develops in two volumes that make clear their function.

A ground floor for the parking car, machines room and a pedestrian entrance. A main volume in a direct connection situation with the exterior, where all the social activities take place. And a top floor for the private zones of the program of the house. All together proposes a domestic habitat in dialogue with the topographic accident.

Materiality

The careful choice of its materials looks forward not to recreate ostentations neither to appeal to the use of ornaments. As a result, its materiality was thought trying to accomplish a cohesive image to the owner’s criteria. The house was built with a traditional system of masonry ceramic bricks and stone cladding, joist slab and polystyrene bricks, suspended ceiling of plaster rock plates, aluminum windows and double hermetic glass. The shutters and doors are made of plate and pipe.
