"que poeticos"

daniel heredia · November 30, 2009

roof house, un sitio para llegar al cielo, para incrementar el potencial del suelo, descriminar lo vertical e incedir en lo horizontal, un limite que se extiende y genera contraindicaciones al permanecer, al desvanecerse y encontrarse en otro horizonte, pasar de diferentes mundos o cielos, como los tres cielos que habla la biblia, donde el ultimo cielo en este caso es el encuentro de la familia, una tradición familiar vuelta arquitectura.

i love this!when i build my dream home this will be one of the inspirations.

The concept is great, the execution was even better. i love the simplicity and the direct approach to the execution. this kept the purity of the concept without any extras.

(I like it that theres no railing on the roof, it would ruin design and feeling you experience by siting on the edge :)

I like it a lot, simple and clean design.

i like the idea. i don't know about the rooftop kitchen though. and there doesn't seem to be any protection against people falling off the roof.
but it's nice to see that space used for something.

Awesome, they designed the children's bedroom with an entrance to the highest side of the roof. 3560mm: they took the proverb living on the edge literally.
