The request of the clients was a vacation home, with a living area to receive and host family and friends, and the house had to be deployed in an area of 20×20 without affecting the existing trees.

The project’s main intention was to generate four volumes that would not touch each other, in the first place to simplify the construction system and secondly to form a central patio that articulates flexible spaces and free circulation, that communicates visually with the outside without losing the privacy and protection for its users.

It was built in the highest part of the land to take advantage of the view and slope, generating a system to capture the rainwater from the roofs and to be able to send it by drainage towards the “pot” of storage.

Due to the complex conditions of services and accessibility to the property, we chose to use eco-technologies and natural materials of the place; braza stone, adobe made on site, wood, reused tile, and mud floors.

With these materials, the constructive system is of stone foundations, with adobe load walls, the inclined ceilings of wood beams and roof covered with tile.
