fragmented house
the section and elevation

The house is distributed over two floors that do not correspond to each other in their entire perimeter. This generates cantilevered bodies in some areas and terraces in others, as shown in the section and elevation of the building.

building services

Mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) are the systems guaranteeing the comfort and habitability of a building. For such purpose, they are designed taking carefully into account all the other formal and technical aspects of the building.

The property has a sports pool and an outdoor spa in the front garden. This elongated pool allows for swimming, while at the far end of the house there is a jacuzzi overlooking the garden.

K house
the main facade

The white concrete slab path leads to the intermediate level of the plot where the house is located. From this point, the elegant silhouette of the building can be observed, a symbolic form that invites to be explored in harmony with nature.

K house
the cross section

The plot has a slight slope. The platform where the house is located is levelled by means of staggered terraces. The infinity pool defines the edge of the landscape.

K house
the courtyard

The house closes in on itself to embrace a small courtyard. This concave space opens up to the swimming pool, which dominates the slope on which the house is situated.

Pedraza house
the cantilever

The house is an open viewpoint that captures and forms part of the landscape. With a simple gesture, the flat green roof is extended to form a cantilevered porch. The simple materials are combined with pure lines and the transparency of the large windows.

concept diagram

The spatial distribution of the house revolves around the landscape. The inner courtyard responds to the best sun exposure, while a large canopy extends above the double height of the living room to frame the view of the mountains to the north.

K house
the front garden

The front elevation of the house encloses a small patio between the dining room and the office area. This front garden is a transition space to the pool that captures the morning light.
