Casa Cumbres by Taller Hector Barroso
The project is developed around a central patio which provides different views, natural lighting and cross-ventilation to the interior spaces. This void acts as the medullar element on the design process. It is the in situ result of the restricted views, the lack of visual elements in the surroundings and the land’s unfavorable location.
The different areas of the architectural program are built around this contemplative patio. The living-dining space is set by a visual and functional continuity between interior and exterior creating the effect of the garden blending with the living and dining room, continuing to extend to the interior patio. When both fronts are completely open, natural light effects, extended views and ventilation are emphasize.
