Living “Inside Out”
With a double ulterior motive, assure the views to the mountains and provide the living areas contact with the interior outdoors, a 10m cube is placed 10m behind the street limit, inducing the division of the plot on four frames of 5m X 10m; fragmentation that permits to incorporate the garden as the void that articulates the relationship between the volume of the house and the frontal access / garage volume.
At first floor level, in axis with the main access, and 15m with the exterior limit, a change of material announces the access to the private area: a pass way that embraces the lineal ascend towards the bedrooms’ hall, from where you discover a higher space, a 25 feet high open space that allows a ray of light that traces time by the sun path moving through the walls that confine the tower. This void receives a staircase that sets out a continuous ascend towards the family room and the master bedroom.
The character that the house transmits to the exterior is given by the sobriety of its 4 planes, which are distinguished by its change in height and the arrangement of its openings given by the relationship that each bedroom establishes with the exterior; searching for a view and an specific light-shadow effect to complete the tacit sense of inhabitance.
