House Between Trees

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
The House Between Trees project is developed by molding the geometry and positioning itself among some pre-existing endemic trees. Respect for existing nature and the mimetic location produce a symbiotic harmonic space where users live in an ideal ecosystem. Vegetation and architecture merge and enhance each other, generating spatial relationships and unique sensory perceptions.
The harmony that the project reflects is the result of balancing 2 important components: nature and architecture. The generation of a symbiotic ecosystem was used, as an applied strategy, where, through respect, adaptation and mutual potentialization, nature and architecture coexist in balance within the same space.
