Martín Dulanto Sangalli
Text description provided by the architects. This project is approached with absolute respect for both the terrain and its surroundings, seeking to have a minimal impact on both.
Regarding the terrain, the ،use fully adapts to its topography, taking advantage of the existing terracing, maintaining its levels and walls, to which the ،use is attached, and respecting the existing nature: both the trees and the large stones in the place are fully preserved, making them part of both the architectural project and the landscape proposal. We are talking about a sensitive architecture that understands that, in conjunction with nature, it is enhanced. It relinquishes its protagonism, allowing nature to take it and appropriate it, resulting in warmer and more welcoming environments with greater spatial quality.
The parking is located on the ground floor, at street level. A first flight of stairs leads us to the social level, where the main garden of the ،use is located and, in close relation to it, a large white block with arches on all three sides that contains the interior social area (living/dining room). From this level, hidden circulations provide access to the service area and, through the spiral staircase, to the upper level where the bedrooms are located. On the upper level, taking advantage of the panoramic view from it, the bedrooms are located.
The ،use has the following rooms on each floor. Entrance level: parking. First level: pool, terrace and outdoor grill, kitchen, laundry and clothesline, dining room, living room, guest bathroom. Second level: master bedroom with closet and master bathroom, bedroom two with closet and bathroom two, bedroom three with closet and bathroom three.
