Text description provided by the architects. A project for four houses is designed on a unique lot that forms a steep ravine.

The project is designed from two towers containing two houses each. The access to both is from the level zero, ascending or descending to the houses. A progression through the building shows the integration with the landscape, and the houses appear floating or below the access road.


The project intends for the houses to barely touch the ground, hence the structural design which has only four metal columns in each tower that achieve the effect of “floating houses” in the landscape.

The ground floor is completely free, adding to the integration with the natural landscape and achieving a very special accessibility to the building and to the houses.

Floor Plan Level 3

In terms of language, we used pure forms and envelopes with a very limited material palette; the facades open to the best views and the openings to the secondary views are controlled.
