Text description provided by the architects. 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.
