The “Vivienda Entre Árboles” is built on a one-hectare terrain with rich vegetation, where an old ranch was located. The project is implanted within an area of dense vegetation, with trees that have developed long trunks in search of light.

Interior spaces change scale according to internal functions in which double heights, bridges, glass volumes containing green life, and hanging floors allow a fluid space, and openings between concrete beams let natural light and ventilation occur.
