The large spaces of this home, clearly express architectonical emotions. The lawyer House is an organism that transmits life by its pores to those that inhabits it. And not only at the informational level, but it also expresses the dynamics of daily life, because its transparent appearance is revealed.
The house is composed by interconnected volumes, some acute ones smoothed with other curved ones that lower the volumetric tension. Perforations communicate the functional structure, spatial hierarchies and finally the pretensions of each volume within the total organization. And as such, the pretensions are established in a friendly communion with all levels of the house.
The outer formal construction of each ambiance has a different language to balance the monumental quality of the house with elements that results in a warm product to the service of those that inhabits it.
The first level is destined to social and service spaces visually integrated with the garden and outer terrace; standing out is the space of the entrance due to its high altitude. The second level hosts the private areas: the lawyer’s office and the guest and service quarters. The third level hosts the family intimate areas. The den and bar, located in a slightly lower level, enjoys privacy and simultaneously it communicates horizontally with the garden.Architect: Gómez De La Torre & Guerrero arquitectos
