House in a tree garden
Designed for a young couple with three small children, the house is located within a tree garden full of a diversity of local species of considering age and size distributed over a very generous area; the site was cared for by the couple for several years before deciding to build.
The most important requirements were that the house be set among these trees and that a small pre-existent construction at the edge of the lot be maintained.
Taking advantage of a prolonged design process, the scheme was abbreviated to two white planes that fold and wind over the slightly sloping site, one shapes the floor plane, and the other, the roof plane and walls that limit the spaces according to their position among the trees, orientation toward the sun, or in relation to other interior spaces. Service, garage and bathroom volumes are inserted or separated from the white planes and differ in material and colour.

House AO in Otavalo
This modern Otavalo property is located within a context where landscape is one of the core conditioning factors for its design. The client requested that the main spaces take part of the best views; the architectonic response was to propose spatiality where the user, the architecture, and the setting would dialogue.

The building stands out through the precise use of geometry, expressing an exo-structure formed by a diamond pattern in the skin. Sequential double-height spaces of the reading areas flow along a strip of glass expressed on the pattern.
