The single-family housing use is fully catered to on the ground floor, while on the upper floor (visually connected to the ground floor through the building’s double height) we created an open and multifunctional space. This space can be divided into two additional rooms. The basement is used for parking, utility installations, and storage.
Given the plot’s trapezoidal shape and its unevenness, the building sits atop a platform on the upper half of the plot, with the garage being accessed through the middle area and, in turn, the natural area being at the lower level. The landscaping takes into account the marked microclimates generated by the shade of the building: native vegetation was used on the north sides (laurel forest) and, to the east, thermopile forest vegetation was used (potential vegetation of this climate zone). To the south, there is an area with the ground covered with plants, colourful trees and shrubs, all of them traditional in the area (wax plant, orange flame vine, etc.), plus the fruit orchard to the west.
The skin of the house is reminiscent of an avocado, a common fruit tree in this agricultural region: on the outside, it is rough and dark (through coarse Tyrolean plastering) and, when cut to make holes for windows, it reveals a smooth interior in different shades of green.
