We designed this house with criteria basically oriented to sustainability, because it is a home with a structural system based laminated timber construction method and characterized by its speed of execution and the use of sustainable and energy efficient materials.
The house, 200 m2, is located in the center of a rectangular geometry and small plot , south-facing sun, where we have the garden and pool area. Volumetrically this is a fairly compact housing, which we shape through a game with planes of the facade.
Inside, it is structured through an imposing double-height access connecting the two levels of the house. On the ground floor are day-use parts that are merged into a single space, completely open to the outside area, so that the boundary between inside and outside is lost. The upper floor is divided into two very different areas for the core of vertical communications, where the master bedroom is located on the one hand, and the remaining bedroom areas, on the other. All areas are characterized by a few large openings seeking light and privacy at the same time.
