odD House 1.0 in Quito, Ecuador by odD+ Architects

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Article source: odD+ Architects

DESCRIPTION

odD House 1.0, located in the sector of Tumbaco in Quito, Ecuador was conceived as a  therapeutic experiment and change of lifestyle for an elderly couple and their family after living in a rustic style home for over 30+ years. Facing very specific demands from the client, the architects strategized on a methodology for the design and final product by studying Neuroscience as well as the client´s lifestyle. This made the initial solution towards solving the design of the house easier; it made a clear diagram, and  gave a design direction towards the client`s main needs. It also raised questions about overall form and language.

Retoños House in Quito, Ecuador by ESEcolectivo

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: ESEcolectivo

The Retoños house belongs to a large extended family made up of several smaller families. The clients, Alvaro and María, wanted a house in which to bring together their 16 family members, including children and grandchildren. As a close-knit family, they get together very often. Until now, this took place in a small apartment in Quito, so they were looking for a quieter place far from the noise and drab environment of the city.

The original project was composed of two houses, one of which was finally built, constructed with local materials.
