The situation of the plot, with frontage across Las Mercedes Road and back towards the rustic landscape, the temperature conditions and humidity of the area, all together, clearly defined our approach to the project. Furthermore, the promoters asked for a modest house but with personality, on a modest budget. Thus, a compact volume is raised, trying to minimize its perimeter and therefore heat loss from inside.

The property is accessed via a courtyard, setting a side path that offers different view points and lets the building be placed furthest from the road. To the road traffic a wall slope was build and we covered it with chumberas (a type of cactus), making a gesture itself, and isolating housing of the easements sounds. As a counterpoint, the rear facade, opened to the west, is a copper-treated timber plan that lets it open at  will at the same time that offers a more conceptual and contemporary plan.

It also raised an insulating suspended ground floor that separates the building from the ground: giving a feeling of a levitating volume while allows forged chamber to vent. Along with this, we placed overhead lighting strips in common areas and distributors and we provided housing with a large variety of climate control mechanisms (EPDM liner plates, concrete with insulated chamber, cross ventilation, facing slopes, etc).

The materials involved take part on the site and will change their appearance with time. So, concrete and wood are the main characters that give a kind and mutable finishing.
