Text description provided by the architects. Situated in one of the privileged areas of the city, this house aims to function not only as a shelter for its users, a young family with a clear and contemporary perspective, but also as a reflection of themselves.
This assignment had a very precise program and no restraints for creativity. The project takes the advantage beautiful views to the city and neighboring forests. The goal is to establish a direct dialog between the house and its surroundings.
The house is divided in two volumes. The first volume made of exposed concrete. It contains the entrance hall, staircase and living room at ground floor. The second floor houses the master bathroom and a family room. The third floor houses the play room and an open terrace. The second volume -as a counterpoint of the first one- contains the rest of the program; dining room, kitchen, bedrooms, and the special services.
The project is a clear proposition where the client and its site are the main allies. The special attention on the construction finishings was essential. It is a house that opens up to the exterior, facing the city.
