Entry Description

Architecture that bonds with the landscape; this concept defines the design of the house that shows a willingness to protect the existing trees and the water on site. The design presents a set of scattered volumes that embrace the existing trees generating interesting views and perspectives as the walls open and close at intersections.

These volumes rise from the ground to allow water to flow through during heavy rain. Light and vegetation slide into every corner of the living space in a dialogue with the house’s different uses, making sure it is “in sync”, at all times, with the surroundings
