The Montevida house is one of those projects whose evolution has been unbeatable. During the process of the project, the young family that will live in the house decided to expand the surface area of the project. They wanted to have a larger garden area and ample interior spaces where their children could enjoy the outdoors. Therefore, the project has been developing in such a way that the entire house is distributed on one level plus basement. In this way, the space becomes much more continuous and connected to the outside.
The geometry of the house is composed of sober volumes and regular shapes of different heights and proportions, resulting in a play of shapes, lights and shadows that revolve around the garden. Creating unique moments from every corner of the house.
The floor plan is formed by longitudinal bands of different sizes, perpendicular to the main facade, connected by a glazed transversal band. It also has a basement for the garage and storage and play spaces.
The house has a slight slope. Therefore, an embankment separates the previous level of access and parking and the garden level where the entire house is developed. In order to increase the living area of the house, the three volumes transversal to the main façade overhang the embankment. Thus generating a discontinuous facade, with breaks that generate volumes of great attractiveness that act in turn as access and more private terraces for the rooms.
Between two of these overhanging volumes is the monumental access to the property, which gives it a great character and expressiveness from the first moment it is accessed.
The Montevida house has a spectacular entrance hall in the glazed transversal band and a space compartmentalized by dining and living room furniture. It also has a kitchen, a secondary dining room and barbecue connected to the terrace, a laundry room, play spaces, three bedrooms and a suite. The outdoor swimming pool completes the shorter volume.
In short, the new Montevida housing project is one of those projects that manages to connect interior and exterior spaces in a harmonious way, through volumes that generate light and shadow and unique moments from anywhere in the house.
