Text description provided by the architects. This project was developed for a woman, young, audacious and independent, we approach the subject of the house from the current perspective with reference to the spaces with which daily life is developed in the sway of the úrbanita.


Usually integration is sought with the immediate environment, however in this specific case it was decided to deny the immediate environment to generate the desired conditions within the project. Create a separate context for this project, in Rem Koolhaas's words "Fuck the context".

The upper floor is enclaustrated from the street, a connecting avenue and exponentially noisy, leaving the views towards the interior of the land by means of wide openings directed towards the garden and the horizon marked by the mountains of the south, the main bedroom is linked directly to the void, but maintains its privacy by means of independent rotating screens that open or close as desired.

 The sophisticated and well-worked volume of the upper part contrasted with the quasi-artisanal surface of the walls of apparent concrete and the polished cement of the lower part, while linking both volumes with the diffuse and phantasmagoric figure that gives us the Vaporized glass that contains the stairs, thus generating the contrast and balance between the three volumes.

A large plant is established covering as much as possible the width of the land, leaving a free border for access to the back garden, on the ground floor generates a large isotropic space that connects visually from the void to the main bedroom.

The plan is released to the maximum without leaving aside the privacy of the intimate areas like the study and the rooms.
