Starting from a basic L scheme, this project offsets different planes to generate voidas and transparencies that erase the interior-exterior borders, allowing for space to flow through the program. Surrounded by a garden or terrace on all facades, concrete bearing walls work as a structure and finishing material. Maintaining simple material palette of concrete, glass, wood and stone. The design is aligned with the energy criteria of the studio, harvesting and purifying rainwater, treating and reusing residual water, generating energy with solar panels and integrating all systems through active and passive technologies.
