Located near the former railway station. On the property there was an abandoned contemporary construction without any architectural value, so we proposed a project in which the exterior spaces could be enjoyed from any part of the house.
Our guiding axis was to use the patio as a unifying element, so that despite the fact that the private area and the public area are physically separated, thanks to the patio they are visually connected.
The volumetry was the result of seeking the greatest thermal comfort with high ceilings, large windows to the north and east, and to the south we supported ourselves with concrete and bamboo overhangs.
With the materiality we seek to give it continuity through the polished white cement on the walls; ceilings and floors with touches of color with pasta mosaics.
