The curiosity for housing and how to improve the quality of life of its inhabitants, along with the analysis of the site, was the impulse that started the design of this house. Located on a site of 1008m2 on the top of a hill, narrow, long, steep and wooded in its lower part that projects to a wide view of the west side of the city and extends to the west. It is because of these characteristics of the terrain that the proposal is decided with a vertical solution that allows to preserve the previous natural state and to take advantage of the different visuals that this generates, the tree tops the warm sunset, and the stars.
The proposal sought to solve the problem of how to break the rigid configuration of the vertical. A discreet frontal facade was proposed, in order not to be invasive with its surroundings and the opening to the landscape, focus of the project.
The program was divided into three, a large volume, which despite its heaviness feels floated in the air, through the withdrawn volume and the windows of the west side in the second level and concrete columns that start wide and end In a slender union of steel that support it, this contains the dormitories.
The access to the house, in the main level, is by means of a suspension bridge that remembers the game of the childhood and becomes a balcony enveloping the social area. This bridge attracts like magnet to discover the distant landscape, while it guides as external vestibule, to the interior of the house. In this floor is a duct of stairs, connector axis, between the different levels. The large windows on the west side of the house have a link with the distant and bring the wonderful surroundings to the interior of the house, the private and safe space of its inhabitants, so that the limit of the house are the Clouds, the sound of the cicadas, the birds and the sensation of the wind.
An open terrace that extends between the treetops, is on the lower level, this terrace of more informal character lends itself to various uses from meditation to outdoor cinema.
As a passive sustainable strategy, the dwelling is impregnated with light and natural ventilation crossed in all its spaces and the protruding eaves and balconies protect from the intense sun of the east and the west, seeking the health and well-being of the users and the energy saving.
The materials stone and certified teak wood were used strategically to generate textures, details and to grant warmth.
