Appreciation towards PPAA for providing the following description:

Las Golondrinas项目位于墨西哥Valle de Bravo的Peña Blanca地区。住宅所在地块地势较高,视野开阔无遮挡,可以完整地欣赏周边风景及远处的群山。住户计划将此住宅作为退休后的居所,因此选择了一个与世隔绝、休养生息的地方,以满足其长期在城外居住的需求。考虑到该住宅是为一个大家庭和他们的客人所设计的,设计团队决定将隐私和景观作为设计重点开展工作。

The project takes place in the upper part of a plot, leaving the surrounding nature intact and opening up to the views of the mountains. The house is thought as a retirement home, a place of disconnection and rest where at the same time they can spend long periods out of town. Taking into account that the house was designed for a large family and with guests, we wanted the house to have privacy and views as a priority.

The building is housed within a large sloping roof. The communication between the interior volumes is done through covered and semi-open corridors part of this large roof that also works as a covered terrace in each of the parts and as a space between interior and exterior.

The house is organized into three independent volumes, the space between these three volumes generates a covered terrace that becomes the social place during the day. Each volume responds to a function and part of the program, in one block are the room, in another the social part and in another the kitchen and services.
