Text description provided by the architects. A house for three sisters, located at the end of a subdivision estate. A tranquil landscape of Sierra Nevada, at 1300m altitude, a secluded place, rooted in the memory of the clients. We intervene in a near and distant place.

We construct three volumes of average depth 6,50m, between Luna Street, where the asphalt ends, and the interior triangular garden between NE and SW. The rooms face south, to the silhouette drawn by the three hills over 2300m, avoiding cross views between them and the adjacent houses. The protection of the house reacts to the oscillation of the weather, over 50°C between seasons. This response, based on the interpretation of vernacular architecture, aims to achieve the adaptation of these houses in to their environment, as plant species. The main investigations have transformed the massive thick wall of traditional houses into a multilayer wall avoiding thermal bridges. This condition is also maintained for openings, with operable double glass, making a total of three chambers and seven layers in an asymmetric arrangement. The interior configuration separates the storage and services of each house to freely arrange the remaining space with greater flexibility.

Houses as landscape, whose behavior responds logically to external stresses and the changing needs of a family that is branching.
