The Domino House rises in the perfect harmony between the interests and needs of the client with the place, through a peaceful architecture inspired by nature, never forgetting the human scale. The implementation of the architectural object in the place is done in a functional and sensitive, where, the relationship between spaces, the solar incidence, the garden and the water work perfectly. Light and matter are controlled to create comfortable and quality environments. The Domino House as an architectural element, leads to work spaces, relationships, intimacy and affection, designed so that all spaces of the house are related and integrated seamlessly. The program was designed and developed according to the customer desires. Where the experiential quality of the space was placed in highest priority. The spaces are functional and developed according to a rigorous geometry, designed as a whole. The social area is oriented to a wider area of the land and the north. The service area is located next to the social as support, but with well!defined limits, without disturbing the social area. The intimate area of the house is entirely developed on the second floor, where comfort and privacy are assured. The sustainable design has always been present, with the aim of creating a timeless and durable housing. Thermal inertia is an essential measure for optimizing energy performance and environmental housing, because it is a source that keeps the temperature. To achieve that, the materials and construction methods chosen are imperative. The exterior cladding is the chosen stone in light tones, improving the thermal inertia and better reflecting solar radiation (absorbing less heat). The stone has created uniformity on the architectural object, providing lightness and accentuating its proportion. Natural ventilation along with the light was key in the design of the openings. The main patio on the ground floor is an essential element in the organization of the different spaces. This patio simultaneously with the second patio, allows greater diffusion of light and natural ventilation, enriched by the presence of water. The water enriches the atmosphere in surrounding areas. The light has been studied in a way that several spaces have light intensities depending on the customer needs. That is, the morning light falling on the bedroom enables the wake to be done smoothly and comfortably. In the afternoon the light falling on the same space, allows people to enjoy to study or relax. The roofs are inclined and combined with small garden patios on the second floor, contributing to qualify the house’s landscape, where ecosystems function in favor of climate comfort and absorption of air pollution. The shape of the house is generated by the garden and pool, becoming catalysts that constantly come into the house, providing a comfortable relationship between inside and outside. The windows open up in order to enjoy the beautiful garden and magnificent swimming pool, which have been developed as part of the architecture. The Domino House materializes a harmonious design in line with customer needs and desires, designing more then a house, a home.
