LOS FLAMINGOS – HOUSE
The project responds to the need to create an exempt single-family home on its plot, trying as much as possible to respect its topographical conditions; thus, as an intervention strategy, an ordering of the altimetric levels of the plot is proposed to create a platform that supports the house on the ground floor that can thus make a large part of the plot passable.
Three clean volumes stand out on the plot. The first constitutes the parking lot and the following two make up the dwelling. The ground floor in the form of an ‘L’ acts as a union and base for the two cubes that make up the upper floor. The house rests on the level 91.00. The house divides between the entrance space and the pool area. This last area is located to the south-east, on a large platform at a height of 90.50, thus closing off the housing area.
Its clean and open geometry reflects the intention of escaping from the usual and predominant idea in the environment of building massive enclosures, in such a way that the house is thought of as a hinge that opens up to the landscape, letting it enter all corners of the house. housing, as a geometric element that defines a space by its primary quality of volume, without sticking to visual restrictions beyond those of the terrain itself. Therefore, it is an artifact that relates the scale of the landscape with that of the inhabitant, interpreting the landscape as one more material for the composition of the domestic space.
The organization of the building guarantees the best thermal and climatic performance for a container where the different rooms are placed.
At the same time, a selection of materials has been proposed in which economy of means and greater efficiency prevail to guarantee correct maintenance and easy replacement. This leads us to opt for materials that give the home a markedly neutral character that is influenced by the presence of the vegetation in the gardens, while serving as a meeting point for a critical stance and rejection of conventionalism. constructive and formal environment.
In general, the house is functionally structured on two floors and a basement. The house is accessed through the ground floor where the day area is located, configured as a single large open-plan area where the kitchen, a dining room and a living room are located, all glazed and separated by the access hall from the main bedroom, from which you access the garden area where the pool is inserted.
At ground floor level and after the living room is the pergola terrace.
From the hall you access the first floor through the communication column. Plant in which there are three rooms with bathroom in suite format.
In the basement there are storage spaces, facilities and services attached to the house
