Text description provided by the architects. The family that lives in the house, chose this part of the forest seeking direct contact with nature.

© César Béjar

Lovers of the outdoor life and of receiving visits, were conditioned terraces, balconies, patios and roofs. At the street level rises a single level, respecting the scale of the neighbors. In the back rise 5 levels, reaching the same height of the trees that existed.

The ground floor is free of walls. At 5 meters under the street is the house entrance, parking spaces and a double height dining room. The kitchen and guest bedroom, with privacy towards the street protected by a green slope and looking for the sun with large windows and open towards the forest. It connects to the wine cellar and access to a covered glass pergola to see trees protected from the rain, with a barbecue for outdoor meals and a pool under the frond of the trees.

Ground Floor Plan

The upper floor is the intimate area of the house, the bedrooms have a balcony running over the trees that even cross it.

The roof is prepared as a meeting point, at the height of the treetops and a viewpoint overlooking the forest towards the valley.

To avoid the humidity the house does not have contention walls, it displaces on a free platform.


To have privacy the facade facing the street is almost a blind wall, to the sides and back of the house is completely of glass to receive the sun and have a view towards the forest.

Marble and hardwood were used on floors, stone as exterior coatings and wood to cover interior walls to help the fireplace increase the temperature.
