In a place saturated of acacias (aproximatels 1 ha). surrounded by a gully from south to west that ceids in a hidden river, that happens to be the best view-side, is where we try to "disolve" the impact of this big surface.

In the case of this project, looking for a small construction would be a mistake. We have plentique land and great views for adding several yords to dispere the succesions of the different areas on the house. 


Taking advantage of a slightly slape on the field (8 metres high and 80 metres lang) we can accomplish the clients requirements: the big building is at the same time, looking smaller. We take as a pont of reference the unique algarrobo tree, that now is inside a gallery. We were able to "buty" port of the bedrooms volume, and at the same time, the material that was dig up we used it on other areas of the constructions to hide it from the outsiders.

The quality space of the haouse is we to the galleries, in addictios to the yards and the magnificent landascape. This argument give significance to the whole proyect. In this space where there is no difference between inside and outside is where makes the difference with the life. This new one is more relaxed and bucolic to finished, we would like to emphasise that mis dwelling is mean to be ageless, timellss, beyond ony style. The materials used in the constructions.

We reached to store, wood, concrete, steel profile and elements that give personality to the building.
