Text description provided by the architects. The paddle-shaped site leads to a golf course with centennial English oak trees. The inner patios and the stair system, which connects two blocks of different heights through half floors, are the heart of the project. The inner patios let air and light into the centre of the houses.
The half floors allow a gradual ascending. The patios and the terraces at different levels connect the houses with their immediate surroundings - the great English oak trees and the golf course – while making the most of Santiago’s good weather.
Light metal sheets cover the facade windows providing privacy and filtering the sun. Every house has been designed with the same rationale: they all have patios, staircases and half floors. However, each one is different, because of the layout requirements of each family.
The maximum house density and constructability allowed by the regulations were followed in order to make the project financially viable.
