Terrazas House

Garzamaya Arquitectos as Architects

Terrazas House is located west of the city of Chihuahua, in a subdivision located on a hill, the land is south facing. The clients looked for a concept where the views of the city would be used to the maximum and at the same time avoid direct radiation in summer and be able to take advantage of it in winter to heat the spaces.

 

The solution consists of a volume in "L" that opens to the north and east, in the volume oriented to the north is the social area, and the volume that opens to the east are the services, the kitchen and the dining room. The two volumes have a large window with terraces to integrate the garden into the house and take advantage of the cross ventilation.

 

The stairs are integrated in the kitchen and dining area, they are always visible from any point of the house; the intention is that they work like a sculpture and also indicate where to go up. 

 

On the upper floor, above the garage and the living room, there are the bedrooms with natural lighting and ventilation from the South. The route to enter the bedrooms is through a corridor that opens to the garden and allows privileged views of the city. In the articulation of the secondary bedrooms and the main bedroom, there is the family social area, with a window towards the heart of the project, which is the garden and the views of the city that are taken advantage of from the second floor.

 

On the top floor, facing east, is located the master bedroom with a private terrace protected from the sun by a flown, also has views of the city and the garden.

 

The structure of the house is by means of concrete loading walls and in the perimeter walls with exposure to the south and the west, we place extruded polystyrene plates in the middle as an insulation system that help to delay the entrance of heat in summer and cold in winter.

 

Access to the house is through a diagonal wall that contains you and tells you where to enter along with the top floor slab and vegetation on the pavement. Upon entering a panoramic window with a panoramic view of the garden with endemic vegetation receive you.
