The project must have a close relationship with the landscape so that it is visually imperceptible in relation to the context, generating diffuse boundaries between inside and outside, using vegetation and natural light as elements to create fluidity between all areas. The relationship of the architectural element with the topography is imposed as a design determinant which varies depending on the location of the lot, for which it is necessary to homogenize a design that adapts to the topography of each property.

Architectonic program


The area of ​​each of the rooms must guarantee the independence of services by means of a bathroom and private dressing room, likewise according to the needs of the home office, a study area with direct access to the outside is necessary, allowing the connection with nature. The hierarchy of the rooms should be reflected in the area and distribution of the spaces.

According to the concept of mimesis in the landscape it is necessary that these spaces are inscribed in such a way that they are visually imperceptible.
