Located in a private development in the valley of Cumbaya, the NR2 House responds to the natural ground, to a stunning landscape and to the project requirements. To the east you can find the Los Andes Mountain, while to the west the private areas of entertainment are located.

At the top level of the house you can find the bedrooms and common areas such as the kitchen, dining room and entertainment areas. On the lower level, at street level, you find the service areas including the parking lot.

Second Floor Plan

We propose transparency, volumetric composition, and materiality as design strategies. In order to use the privileged view of the landscape, several perspectives from different areas of the house are handled. Also, the front of the house meets the street in an unobtrusive way.

Materials such as concrete and burnished metal are used in the construction of the house. The kitchen and dining area are located in the northern part. The living room, gym and bedrooms, are unified by a pergola of laminated wood, which covers great part with the terrace, creating a gathering space that brings together the private, social, and pool area.

The relationship between interior and exterior spaces is based on the controlled management of natural light. The volume of the spaces causes light contrast and this occurs because the dim light travels through the house.
