In this project the client has a significant role by giving fundamental premises for the project. We attempted to generate non-orthogonal spaces, playing with different levels and organizing the enclosures from two interior patios that introduce natural light and vegetation to the house interior, and a family living room located in the center of the house, articulating the situations.
Moreover, the beamed steel skin is based in a green support that interacts with the environment by becoming part of itself and providing shade to the outer spaces. The nobility of its materials (concrete, stone slate, wood and metal), merely helps to such intention.
