The project was conceive as a response to the context, sun, views, program established by the clients and the idea of interacting with nature and the landscape. The house was placed at the North East corner of the site near the access to the closest road in order to maximize the use of the land. The buildings work as a screen that conceals the property when you enter. The North façade facing the sun has been perforated only to generate views and a cross ventilation while keeping it mainly solid to control the sun during the day and release heat at night. The building has been split in to two concrete and stone volumes connected through a glass bridge that sits in the upper side of the property controlling its views onto the landscape and opening the public and private spaces to it. The program was divided in three parts and two levels to minimize the footprint, the main volume ground floor contains a family room, kitchen, dining room and a double story living room bringing the exterior into the house, the double height living room displaces the second floor children’s bedrooms to the side and generating a cover outdoor patio around an exterior fireplace and wood oven. The second concrete building has been separated by an open walkway to the garden and contains a guest room with a mezzanine and the master bathroom that connects back to the house through the cover glass bridge.
