Surrounded by trees, with an L-shaped layout, this home strikes a careful balance between a large sector open to green views at vanishing point and another area that fosters intimacy.

Inside a gated community, located at the end of a street facing a cul-de-sac, the lot on which this house is built was special because of its lush grove. Both the commissioners and the Studio truly valued the existing vegetation so they took it as a starting point for this project. The L-shaped layout opens out into the back and to one side of the building, with a view to green spaces shared by the community. Between these two glass facades which embrace their surroundings, a wooden structure serves as a terrace on the top story, creating a semi-covered area on the ground floor. A deck made of the same wood connects the house to the swimming pool, offering visual continuity and completing the social area of the project. Inversely, the front façade and the other lateral, where the service areas are located, have smaller openings aiming to protect the privacy of those dwelling in the house while also increasing their sense of refuge. The architectural language here is refined, with touches of modernism, daring strokes, and a will to honor austerity by reducing the use of building materials. Wood takes center stage since it is used in openings, decks and flooring in the social areas of the house, nurturing a continuous exchange between inner and outer spaces. Along the same lines, to ensure visual continuity, green was the chosen color for pool coverings so that it could blend into the surrounding vegetation. The Studio was integrally in charge of the design, from the first sketches down to the last details of the interior design, which guaranteed the project was well coordinated and harmonious.
