Paralelogamo House designed by Najas Arquitectos is a private commission for a family home located in the Cumbayá Valley in Quito, Ecuador. The design features two parallelogram-shaped volumes that create an “L” configuration to meet the architectural needs of the client and maximize the visual and physical connections to the stunning landscape views of the site. The layout allows for complete fluidity between the internal spaces and private gardens. Photography by Bicubik Photography.
The first parallelogram includes a single-height foyer that frames the main entrance and compresses the visuals from the street. Once inside, the space opens up to the main social areas, including a double-height living room with a flexible glass connection to the pool and BBQ area in the back garden, allowing for unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape.
The second parallelogram, located on the north side, houses all the service areas on the first floor, including a guest bedroom, photo studio, and home office. On the second floor, the private bedrooms and media room are arranged around a central terrace, perfect for family gatherings and enjoying the natural surroundings.
