Text description provided by the architects. PROJECT
As a result to the sites unique characteristics, the architectural concept arises from the indoor-outdoor interaction for this single family home that is set with open views in a complex topography.

The design is a synthesis of spaces joint through patios emphasizing the connectivity with the outdoor space. The complexity of heights gets resolved by locating the garage below the main volume to compensate the grading. This main volume houses the public area, 2 main areas that are connected through an entry patio and takes advantage of the main views and orientations. The private area and future expansions follow the same design logic of connections with the outdoor space. Through this open spaces, every room gets northern light.

SUSTAINABILITY
The suitable orientation of the house is not the only aspect considered for good temperature conditioning. A mixed construction system including concrete, metal framing hardware and 6 cm polyurethane foam rubber with air chamber; also aid to the conditioning of the place. Awnings and sliding vertical sunshades generate a microclimate that retains the heat or cold air. Rainwater is collected through a series of gutters and stored to be reused for landscape.

MATERIALS
The intention was to utilize low maintenance materials that would also have a lower impact to the site. Exposed concrete and oxidized metals are the main actors, with their unique characteristics of changing textures and coloring through time.
