House in the mountain is a project designed by Conecta Arquitectos Ltd and is located in Bogotá, Colombia.
“Given the dramatic landscape canyon of Rio Bogota and as a way to ensure the fluidity and continuity within the same housing, subtly challenge was implanted in the environment, appropriating the space of the barrel; for that a warp of order lines that contrast sharply with the sinuous and organic geometry of the landscape, seeking to create a fusion between the natural and the constructed between solid and liquid, closed open, inside out, filled with empty, transparent opaque is created; so that these attributes were the ingredients that allow and give the tone for the organization and materiality of the house.
This ¨Urdimbre¨ loose planes, porches full, empty frames, enclosures and yards rise; landscape that building spaces with the rigor of the ordering lines of architecture; architecture with green elements that complete the definers of indoor enclosures loose planes. Access as a great transition and distribution space is materialized with the creation of woven wire mesh (air) and espacato walls (Stone), valuing the impact of a canyon view.”
