Aguas Claras House / Perspectives / Home
Project Description From the Architect
The house is inserted in the terrain taking advantage of the panoramic views and topography. A perpendicular slopeÂ towards the sights and the main volume define two levels which are linked by a single vertical element, the black edgedÂ stone chimney that goes through both floors. Access at the top level leads to major facilities: living, dining, kitchenÂ areas and master bedroom, accompanied with two wind protected terraces and a balcony running across all its length,Â defined by the recessed glass windows in its west view. The lower level contains five bedrooms and a family room. The immediate surroundings and the panoramic views towards the ocean’s horizon, determine the main buildingÂ programme to open its body parallel to this gifted sight, while all circulations take place around the building’s forestÂ sides. The said situation defines two distinctly different sides; it comes forward with a fully glazed facade that opensÂ entirely to the sea views, when the back entrance is defined with a sealed facade, worked out with timber sleepersÂ interspersed with glass, giving partial views of the woods.
