A complex terrain with a steep slope and a narrow access forced us to distribute the clients extensive program in three volumes separated by two different patios, allowing sunligh, natural ventilation and a great green view from every window in the house. We played with the topography creating terraces for every volume, in order to adapt to the land and integrate the basin´s slope as an active part of the house. The design is aligned with the energy criteria of the studio, harvesting and purifying rainwater , treating resudues and generating energy with solar panels.
