House Between Trees
The owner has had a lifelong connection to the site, because his family’s weekend home used to be there. The lot is full longtime trees, so the architectural design seeks to preserve the greater part of the vegetation, in order to maintain the experience of being under and amidst them.
Located on a very narrow little street, the one-store construction is set back on the lot and integrated with the street by means of an urban expansion that serves both pedestrian and vehicle entry. The house is closed on the outside but very open within, with large glass panes that allow the garden and trees to be appreciated.
