Text description provided by the architects. This house was designed for a young couple with two children, whose intention was to build a small house, practical and welcoming. The clients wanted a fluid home that would favor the interaction of the family: the couple often receives their families on the weekends. In their speech, they expressed the desire to have "a house that conveyed the idea of shelter, comfort, warmth ...".
The small site and its solar orientation led to the implantation: the lot has its front oriented to the west, so the house turns to the back, to capture the predominant ventilation and ensure the privacy
The visual identity of the house is marked by the use of materials such as wood, which covers the ground floor of the main volume, associated with the leaked elements that protect the circulation of access to the rooms on the upper floor and added to a panel of tiles that seals the master bedroom bathroom, in a gesture that seeks a synthesis between regionalism and contemporaneity.
