The site conditions, climate, topography and existing vegetation, acted as fundamental aspects for the design of this eco-friendly project. The site is located in a tropical area of lush vegetation on the outskirts of the city with a downward slope from the upper street level to the rear garden bordering a golf course.On the plot there is a single tree (Guazuma ulmifolia) native to tropical America, with large dimensions and characteristics of great presence. The basic volume composing the design consists of a series of staggered prisms following the natural topography of the land and also placing the tree as a focal point or heart of the project.The tropical architecture is manifested by interacting with prism interiors, with semi outdoor and open spaces like terraces, pergolas, gardens, fountains, pool, and cantilevered stairs.
