The negative spaces or the absence of volumes and physical bodies are the quintessence of the project. The patio, an empty space that complements the general design, the absence of construction, the voids in the interior areas, which give amplitude and generate negative spaces full of emptiness and counteract heavy bodies. A contradiction that makes sense within the paradigms proposed on this occasion.
In the hall or porch, a concrete wall reveals this idea by subtracting a part of its volume. On the ground, near its center, there is a large Avocado tree more than 10 meters high. Its existence was one of the guidelines to follow in the design process. This was the first point that started with the definition of negative spaces that were carefully inserted into the program defined by the client. And the tree becomes a fundamental space in our architecture.
Upon entering, the double height of the hall welcomes you into an open space whose isotropic character fills whoever arrives with a pleasant ethereal sensation. In the living room, a large double-height space and the main living area directly connect the living room, dining room and kitchen inside, which together with the outdoor terrace and direct connection to the tree create a synergy of sensations around everything. All spaces come directly to the terrace and the tree. The void and its noise, above us, and we full, placid, at rest in the sobriety of the shadow of a tree.
