Text description provided by the architects. Located in a residential area of rugged terrain on the outskirts of the city of Cordoba, the house is designed from the possibilities and limitations that this new suburban area provides. The land, whose condition was critical in the design strategy, has a square 20x20 and a significant proportion of outstanding land, placing the access road at its lowest level.
The strategy consists of the colonization of the entire land occupation optimizing it. This is embodied with a housing in the form of "L" that adapts to the topography arranging its program in stages. These internal terraces are projected leak to the outside while the sloping roof accompanies the natural slope. It is a project that opens into him looking for the best guidance, views and privacy to the immediate environment, protecting if necessary, with mobile panels. On the other hand it has a very closed perimeter openings exclusively for thermal issues.
The construction is very simple, typical of a project with resources of state credits, where the masonry of concrete blocks and metal covered with wooden ceiling resolved the materialization of the house austere and simple, and all unified under the color white.
