The site presents a difference in level of about 16 meters in one direction, offering magnificent views of the surroundings; the house is inserted at a specific level from which it optimizes different entry levels and the integration of the exterior space. A clear connection is generated throughout the 3 main levels of the projects: entry level, the levels of the house and the lower level platform containing the pool. The project is conceived as stacking program enclosing different uses on specific levels of the site. Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe house works as a vertical block organized by vertical circulation through a stacked staircase which connects the user to different levels and program having on the lower level the kitchen with dining area, the intermediate level or entry level the living room, the  top level the bedroom and full bathroom, and above that the roof deck. The directed views are key to the project as per orientation of each level and space interconnection on the inside.

This platform of 200 square meters consists o f a swimming pool, grill, outdoor dining tables, and lounge spaces, with views the valley as well as the river. Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe design of the ventilated facade is conceived with the idea of somehow printing an abstract image of a tree, just as if the house would camouflage with the many existing trees from the site. Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe façade evolves from the idea of digital pointillism where the image of a tree is digitalized with the same technique of the impressionist paintings, where the user is able to see the full image from a distance but as one gets closer it becomes a constellation of pixels which gives a unique texture to the house. This is achieved with 232 Trespa panels from which 40% are perforated using CNC technology for the fabrication and precision and placed on an aluminum sub-structure. Save this picture!© Rafael GamoCasa Alta, is a subtle intervention to the site, context and vegetation, with a minimum footprint to allocate the basic needs for a weekend house. A house that becomes and observatory from the inside and a house of intervention from the outside. A house to enjoy the outdoors.Save this picture!Courtesy of AS/D Asociacion de DiseñoProject gallerySee allShow lessDaegu Gosan Public Library Competition Entry / FORMAArticlesThe Masséna Competition Entry / Harmonic + Masson Architects and Comte Vollenweider …Articles Share Casa Alta / AS/D Asociacion de Diseñolast_img read more
