The Oblique Extension House comes from the need of the owners to recover a disused terrace of the master bedroom and generate a new deck on the ground floor.


The main uses for this expansion are a space for yoga, aerial yoga, hammocks, reading, and seating areas in a totally flexible space, the spatial dynamics in a given length were the challenge of the proposal.


The proposal, apart from granting new uses, seeks to refresh the facade of a house with an industrial style, materials such as exposed concrete, micro cement, and stainless steel, are part of the original project.


A cantilevered cube that is from the current construction, with a corten steell skin and a window with an oblique perspective forms the nucleus of the extension, from the lower face of the nucleus, the deck spaces are born: hammocks, aerial yoga, and reading.


The design of the skin is based on the manufacture of a structural mesh, modulated for maximum use of the steel plates, depending on the space. To avoid the use of bolts in the installation of the plates, a fold was made around the contour of each of them, which allowed the use of welding.
