El Bosque House, Cordoba
The essence of the project are two concrete slabs that form the horizontal limits unifying the house as a whole. Between them two intermediate spaces separate the activities of the house, generating diversity of spatial situations and seeking to break the limits of the Interior with the Exterior. A Simple Concept, diversity of situations, is a radical exercise of horizontality.
The house closes towards the street through its unevenness, in it hides an inner world, its presence is felt more strongly in the footprint than in the volumetry. An extensive line in an internal landscape. Under the concrete slabs there are three programmatic boxes, separated by intermediate spaces, the first corresponds to services and leisure, and the second with the social space is wrapped in a box, with sliding glass and wood that open to the outside space, forming a large space.
The vegetation is the protagonist of it, generating a fusion between nature and architecture that enriches the spatial experience. The exterior enters the interior and the interior expands to the exterior. And the third with the rooms, which expand into the courtyard.
Aesthetically, two main materials can be appreciated: concrete and wood. This combination of materials has been carefully selected to provide a combination of sobriety, warmth and simplicity. The house opens completely to the north with a continuous gallery to take advantage of the north, forming a large side facade of wood slats, generating plays of light and shadows inside. On the other hand, the house is protected to the south, forming a lateral concrete facade in which skylights were strategically placed, so that the whole house has natural light.
The use of wooden slats on all the walls generates spatial continuity. This feature also allowed to camouflage the access to the rooms and service areas. Leaving as a backdrop a concrete wall illuminated from above.
The layout of the spaces has been carefully planned to make the most of the climatic conditions and the needs of the users. In the basement are located the services and the garage space, which is linked to the upper floor through a vertical circulation. A side entrance path at the front of the house invites the viewer to the entrance, leading to the heart of the courtyard. In the General Plant, there are three programmatic boxes, in the first one there are the services that were strategically located to close the facade, and the fire sector is presented, a leisure space linked in an intermediate space that opens to an outdoor deck where the stove of the patio is located.
In the second box, the large social space is presented, where the living room, dining room and kitchen are integrated. The latter stands out as a wooden cube with sliding panels that allow it to be integrated into the environment. The space is directly linked to the outdoor deck where the pool is located, the main protagonist of the courtyard, with its infinite edges, creating a mirror scenery of the courtyard. The third box is separated from the second by an internal courtyard, this last box contemplates the bedrooms and the playroom.
In summary, this house is a project that combines horizontality, functionality and materials to create a unique spatial experience. The concrete slabs unify all the spaces, while the glass and wood elements create a fusion between the interior and exterior. Materials such as concrete and wood bring sobriety, warmth and simplicity to the design. The layout of the spaces has been carefully planned to take advantage of the climatic conditions and meet the needs of the residents. In short, this house is an example of architecture that seeks to break down barriers and create functional and aesthetically captivating spaces.
