From the architect. The client made the request to me of drawing the house in a way the house was warm, functional and one level only for the floor. It should had responded to a limited budget, a dificult context and a minimal terrain. With the budget aproximating to 45,000 USdlls, a living room, a kitchen, a dinning room, a bathroom, a 1/2 bathroom, a dressing room, and a main bedroom were constructed within 73 m2.

The bedroom is divided with 2 walls to provide intimacy and the dressing room and the bathroom are added, separately, the kitchen is enclosed by 3 tall walls; the livingroom and dinning room, as well as the 1/2 bathroom ar drawn into the public area.

My proposal was to open the house as much as possible to the sun, air, and a small existent garden. The height responds to the impact of the morning sun, that crawls all the way in through the 2 large windows to illuminate the space completely. Waking up, as well as having a meal, have an eternal interaction with the exterior, which is manipulated totally by nature (the garden)

This house was planned for an old couple. Everything mentioned bebore was enclosed within very closed walls to respond to the complex and not very pleasant context, open just to where it was convenient, and its aesthetics planned for not drawing the attention of anyone but its occupants. Under these concepts and conditions, I built the great-grand parents house.

este arquitecto tiene apenas 26 años y 4 construcciones... y un par de proyectos creo... eso no es considerado arquitecto... se necesita experiencia y conceptos firmes y definidos para lograrlo no casas de este tamaño!

I have rarely seen a work of art and architecture at its best expresion in a house, it seems amazing how forms work, granting vanguard and dynamism to a living spaces. The talent and dedication is shown on the perfect harmony of forms and in the care of every single detail of the construction.
Congratulations Jesus Davila Architects!!!!

Un proyecto cuidado, sobretodo por las líneas rectas tan pulcras. La iluminación natural realza los espacios de una manera muy bella.

Hermoso diseño, siempre es genial descubrir propuestas tan limpias y transparentes para habitar. Felicidades!

Gregorio Salazar · November 28, 2012

Los ángulos dentro y fuera de la casa están agressivos y elegantes, dentro del espacio está fascinante como esa franja de luz actúa como un reloj de sol al convivir con todos esos ángulos. Es de las pocas estructuras que he visto que hacen las pases con su contexto exterior, y eso sin siquiera tocar aún el tema de la comodidad...

Por ese precio obtengo todo ello? excelente el lugar, mucha luz como bien lo dices, me sorprendes, eres muy buen arquitecto.

Miki · November 26, 2012

A lot of effort has gone into the specifications of the buyer to ensure desired levels of sunlight can enter the rooms.

The budget seemed quite low so I think this was designed very well to allow construction to cost so little.

The open plan living would definitely suit the buyer as it allows easy access to each room.

Well done.

Acogedora, accesible, iluminada y espaciosa. La casa esta ideal para una pareja en donde pueden disfrutar de la compañía de sus familiares en visitas los fines de semana y entre semana encontrarse en un lugar agradable para descansar y entretenerse.

Son unas fotos hermosas, pero la casa es todavía mejor. es un lugar donde te sientes acogido y al mismo tiempo fascinado con cada detalle

These are some beautiful pictures, but the house is even better. It's a place where you feel sheltered while you are fascinated with every detail. I would say MAGNIFICENT!!
