From the architect. This house is located at the suburbs of Medellín (Colombia), 2,150 meter AMSL (Above Mean Sea Level).

The outstanding visual over the valley (named Valle del Aburrá), and the native forest that surrounds the house make this site unique in its type.

The longitudinal house location in reference to the plot enables walking trough while enjoying the exterior outlook.

The built-in white concrete volume encloses the social and the service zones, as well as the bedrooms. The built-in black stone volume surrounds the master bedroom and the private study (wood-box), both are linked by a iron built-in bridge.

Sun-light and shade splits the social zone in summer time, as result of the patio, the study, the bedrooms location against south and east facades.

At the end of the year, the sun is south located and the whole area has a steady shade over the social zone, not only because of the house location but the native forest sun shade effect.

The entry is a dual connotation, i.e., colossal and tiny, which best elucidates the "zaguán y el alero" (hallway) very popular in the traditional Colombian houses.

Est-ce qu'un bon projet est????, mais est-ce qu'il ne correspond pas à la place, en Europe ce serait parfait........... mais dans Suramerica????????? nous a laissés se souvenir de l'architecture que c'est de place à moins qu'il soit conçu: soutenable, adaptatif et transmissible (il pourrait correspondre ce chemin à toute place mais avec les mêmes caractéristiques, c'est-à-dire places semblables) ils se le sont soucié d'Europe et il/elle avait un atterrissage parfait.......

I wouldn't say anything different that this is a fantastic design. What a simplicity and magnificence. I have seen other projects/houses from this young architect and certainly I do believe he will be part of the famous persons of the architecture.

Is it just me or does South America seem like the place to be when it comes to architecture these days. Some brilliant stuff going on there.
