Text description provided by the architects. The property is located on a site with a smooth, continuous slope toward a large valley, it only has trees on the perimeter as it was for agricultural use.

The project of the house is a large space that is laid out in a linear manner with all the spaces towards the view through a terrace. Crosswise an intersected body finished in wood controls the side view of the house to the party wall.

The main structure of the house is made of metal with a very marked rhythm and has a secondary wooden structure which allows it to be totally separated from the ground, allowing the passage of all facilities below the house.


The finishes throughout the house are very homogeneous and simple, without claddings, the floors are made of exposed, polished and waxed concrete, the walls are made of concrete and partitions are made of exposed concrete block. Glass partitions are framed in aluminum and have double glazing for thermal control.

The project has solar systems for water heating, treatment plant and various reservoirs and storage tanks for rainwater. Due to the orientation of the house, we designed wooden screens for sun protection.
