* Residential Architecture: Mirador House by 2.8x Architects

Posted by the editors on Wednesday, 27 June 2012

Residential Architecture: Mirador House by 2.8x Architects: “..The project consists of two volumes that contrast each other. A fully transparent volume predominantly glass and metal houses the social housing area allowing a clear view over the city. A second volume contains the most secretive private area of the house. The stone and concrete help to create the counterpart and to demonstrate how the building sits on the hill in a firm transparent allowing the volume to feel like a free-floating element in a more heavy and rocky..As part of the idea of exploiting the full view and fix the theme of the fifth facade in a neighborhood where homes are spread over the hill, we chose to include a garden terrace around the roof of the social area completing the idea of this volume as a great lookout over the city. This area is part of the guest bedroom located on the second level..”  Extensive glazing, natural light and views, materials, contextual, indoor/outdoor and stylistic sensibilities..
