The care of this territory, its flora, and fauna, in addition to the understanding of the best way to intervene in it, is what permits us to name it a reserve and lays the muse for every little thing we undertaking inside it. This home, as its identify suggests, is the second inside the complicated. Designed in collaboration with apda – Ana Paula de Alba for the interiors and furnishings, the proposal seeks to ascertain a direct relationship and steady contact between the person and the surroundings. The home consists of 4 impartial pavilions, their association responds to the topography of the positioning and its current vegetation.

The principle quantity – open on 3 of its sides with out doorways or home windows – proposes inhabiting the house in a steady open however lined space; a single-shaded terrace. It’s a linear succession of areas that begins with a terrace for the kitchen, which is used within the mornings and the place a dim mild shines, and within the afternoons or evenings for cooking subsequent to an outside grill. That is adopted by a eating room, a lounge, a terrace, and a swimming pool that stream collectively seamlessly beneath a single roof made from wooden and clay.

The quick entrance of every quantity faces the horizon of the big bay of the reserve, whereas the lengthy faces of every pavilion merge the view with the environment, making the prevailing vegetation and the rugged topography of the hills a direct extension of the home. The middle of the home will not be the structure, however the voids generated by the association of the 4 pavilions that make up the undertaking, erasing the boundaries of the property. Each the structure and the interiors have been labored hand in hand from the start of the undertaking, with the intention of respecting – as the primary aspect of visible curiosity and interplay – the context through which the home is positioned.

The usage of native supplies, cross air flow, light-colored flooring reminiscent of uncooked travertine in mild beige, non-slippery, which supplies a pleasing temperature for strolling barefoot and permits the animals of the world to be seen resulting from its colour, are just a few examples of the weather of vernacular structure integrated into the design.

The best problem of this undertaking was to grasp its location, respect the prevailing vegetation, and accompany the positioning’s topography to make use of it in favor of the dwelling. For the development of the home, the volumes have been first traced on-site, the required and minimal cuts have been studied to place the volumes in response to a double fro
ntal and lateral slope, and the vegetation was eliminated after which relocated to enrich the voids generated by the position of the 4 pavilions; 80% of the vegetation that occupied the footprint of the pavilions was transplanted, this vegetation is what supplies privateness between every of the modules.

After virtually three years of sluggish and cautious building, we are able to get pleasure from structure inside a mature context of irreplaceable vegetation. No heavy equipment was used for the development of this home. All supplies have been transported a few kilometer with an ATV and a trailer constructed on-site, a call that allowed the vegetation surrounding the undertaking and the paths designed to discover the reserve on foot, by bike, or in electrical carts to stay undisturbed.
