Steel, wood, stone and glass merge to form a simple structure 

Having been entrusted to carry out a residential project on this site, the architects decided to explore the posibility of designing a house that would generate the least impact possible and could be adapted in the best way to the natural conditions of the site.

This is how the architectural concept of this house was born: a lineal spatial organisation with platforms on different levels and with different angles that allowed Gomez Crespo Arquitectos to adapt and integrate architecture to nature.
The architectural design consists of areas built with steel structure and glass. This evokes a sense of lightness, transparency and harmony with the surroundings. Wooden beams were used to give warmth to these open spaces.

The colours chosen played an important role in the design process: the metal structure painted as the colour of tree trunks, the concrete sections coloured to reflect the earthy shades of the area, the stone walls and flooring chosen in earth tones and glass used to allow total transparency and integration. Water treatment, solar energy and passive ventilation were considered in the design.
