Located in an area of irregular shape, this house has a particular architectural program, where each space was conceived with the intention to improve the connection between the interior and exterior, in a visual and physical way.


8A house was projected to look for the best orientation for each space, resulting in different external nodes turned in terraces, which allows the entry of sunlight, generating private gardens as focal elements from inside, and as green and living areas for the user. Also the different ground levels established the way of live and walk through the house, relations among the spaces were determined with level and height changes.


From the outside, the house is discovered by walking through it, from the access square where different volumes rise up by the proper use of proportions; to balance the project horizontality there is a prominent and vertical concrete volume that creates a compositional axis, which defined the spatial organization, emphasizing and framing the house access.


This house is plenty on materials, such as concrete, marble, wood, glass, natural stone, steel, etc., but minding the balance with simplicity of form and detail. These materials defined the interior design, creating textures and contrasts that allow different experiences in to the spaces, making them warm and comfortable.


 8A house is an exceptional project, from the complexity of the program to the selection of the materials, converting it into a unique architectural design.
