Text description provided by the architects. The VV House is built on a terrain of 20x40 with a slope greater than 25%. The terrain’s declivity imposed the shape of the house in 3 floors in a way to accommodate its rooms and allow, through its panoramic openings, a broad view of the extern scenario, where there is a dense vegetation in the valley in which the construction is situated.

The architectural concept integrates in its main volume two pure forms of parallelepipeds that overlaps transversally, one, the top volume, connects with the street, the other, the bottom volume, makes a barrier. Purposefully done, because in that condominium the majority of the houses have walls, what interferes in the architecture, transforming the house into an invitation to the curious look of who passes through.


The intimate area of the house is in the connection with the street and in the upper floor, connecting the garage to the suites, being the vertical circulation through the stair linking to the social area that corresponds to the living room, dining room, kitchen, gourmet area and balcony. In this social floor – ground floor – there is also a service area and an office. Down the stairs of the balcony, arrives to the leisure area composed by gym, sauna, wet deck and swimming pool with lane.
