Residential Architecture: La Peña House by R-ZERO Arquitectos: “..this house is a project at the bottom of the cliff that highlights and frames the beautiful great lake views from within. Due to the irregular ground where it is located, it has been solved in three levels to also blend into the landscape..created through the construction of large windows, concrete walls and stone..These carefully chosen materials maintain the heat during the night and preserve a cool environment during the day..All the public areas as well as the circulations have been designed to be monochromatic, where the raw concrete walls, the granite and the recycled wood emphasize the light that comes through these walls, creating a natural game of shadows and light..” Abundant glazing and natural light, interesting interior volumes featuring concrete, stone and wood, wood ceiling, terraces..
