A house that seeks the peace of a family to get away from the noise of the city and get closer to nature.
The Casiopea house is located in an extensive residential area, among large green areas and vegetation. The home’s geometry arises from the position of the house within its environment and the search for privacy.
The facades are permeable where there are views and are protected and closed with latticework where there are other houses. Natural elements such as lime mortar stucco, latticework and stone are used. The sobriety of the exterior stone façades with the interior where a more welcoming atmosphere is sought using warmer materials with wood.
The house is generated from two folds. One on the ground floor that opens into an open interior patio that leads to the house, and a second fold on the upper floor that is perforated by vegetation from the patio downstairs. This courtyard visually communicates all of the home’s spaces and allows for the creation of a space for socializing indoors, which introduces nature inside, and which at the same time cools the house and introduces light during the day.
An interior patio is created that becomes the center of the house, as a welcoming element, our own oasis.
